En Plein Air Landscapes in the Garden

En plein air landscapes

It’s such a splendid day today; the Indian summer is here at least for this week. As a class, we decided on the spur of the moment, that I’d do this morning’s painting demonstration in the garden. This took about an hour to get to this stage…then it was back into the studio for coffee, biscuits and the rest of the class. What drudgery!

In the brighter months, I run en plein air landscapes painting workshops and events in venues around the country (and this year in sunny countries!) I’ve hosted groups in An Grianán, County Louth, beautiful Grangecon in County Wicklow and Wexford in the sunny south east of Ireland.  Click on the links below to see what’s coming up this year and BOOK EARLY!

Culture Night Dublin : This Friday

En plein air painting at Culture Night Dublin, September 2019

I’m not officially part of this coming Friday’s Culture Night Dublin programme. I always forget to work it into my plans – and my studio is too far away from the centre of town to include it on the itinerary. 

However; instead I’m going to do a bit of guerrilla participation and head down to the South Georgian Quarter (the area between Grafton Street and Merrion Square) to paint a streetscape nocturne. Most likely in Molesworth Street but I’ll post up on Facebook my exact location once I’ve settled on it and if you’re around, do say hello. I’ll get set up at about 6.30pm and paint away until I get tired or arrested…

I really hope to see you!

Paint small; paint oils; paint often!

August Painting at An Grianán


 Thank you to all who attended last weekend’s en plein air painting weekend with me in An Grianán, home of the Irish Countrywomen’s Association. Thanks also to the staff there for hosting this event. Once again I enjoyed it immensely – and the feedback has been tremendous. 

I have to say, I learned a lot from teaching everyone as I always do. This time, we ventured out of the beautiful campus to paint in Termonfeckin itself and then at Port Oriel in Clogherhead. We were lucky with the weather, too. We caught a couple of showers but had plenty of sunshine to paint in.  We met colourful characters and interested passers-by who stopped to chat.

I’m so looking forward to making another trip to An Grianán. The staff are so friendly and obliging and the food is plentiful and delicious. Maybe, since the duller weather is approaching, an indoor weekend workshop might be worth considering…portraiture, still lifes and working with imitation gold leaf to bring a little sunshine back? Drop me an email if you’d like that – or have any suggestions.

Meanwhile, art classes in my studio are starting again next week. There are still a couple of places on Wednesday morning if you want to venture into the world of painting in a genuine artist’s studio. There’s always fresh coffee and biscuits to keep you going – and I do a demonstration painting at every class.

Paint small; paint oils; paint often!
