Sunday landscape painting day in Kildare at Hazelhatch
Grab your pochade box and easel and paints -we’re off to a real life art event on July 11th! I’ll be holding a day of en plein air landscape painting in Kildare at Hazelhatch on the Dublin/Kildare border (see map below). Hopefully, there’ll be fine weather and lovely canal boats to paint. The Hazelhatch pub is right at the bridge though they don’t do food, so bring sandwiches for your lunch. I’ll demonstrate a quick study in the morning and explain the process and then you can choose your own spot and start your own painting. The important thing is to have a bit of fun. Meet at the Hazelhatch canal bridge at 10AM. Finish at 4.30PM. 1 hour for lunch.
Date: July 11 2021
Hazelhatch is right on the Grand Canal, halfway between Celbridge and Newcastle. See map below.
We will maintain the social distancing protocol. There’s plenty of room to space ourselves out.
Parking is wherever you can find it. This is of course weather dependent and if it’s too inclement, we’ll have to cancel/postpone and you’ll get a full refund. If you wish you can carry it over until the next event. We’ll have to play that by ear.
€30. 10 Places Only.
What you will need for painting:
A plein air easel (or pochade-box easel).
