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!

2019. Painting Retreat at An Grianán

My first painting retreat at the ICA headquarters; An Grianán,  in County Louth was last weekend. We had a wonderful time. Despite the weather, which was changeable as you can see, we all got a lot of work done -either outside or in our art room.

As ever, I did plenty of demonstrations. We were very well fed, An Grianán is famous for the quality and generosity of the food. We’re all going to need a week just to digest!

So, thank you to all who attended and made it such a fun event. I hope you gained some new techniques, approaches and confidence to paint landscapes en plein air and I hope to see you at the next event.
