Event Description

Because we can't meet face-to-face, this is a Digital Virtual Paint-out for the Howth area , no matter where in Ireland, people live, with imagery we can access online in our own homes.  Howth has a lot to offer with 2 lighthouses, a harbour with lots of colourful boats, a customs house, a martello tower and there's also a Howth castle.

 And we have a week to produce a result.   Participants can find their own inspirational  images online, and because the source is digital, people from around the country can take part.  Here are a few links. 

First Google Street, where one can travel around  in a virtual manner.,-6.0709905,3a,75y,266.89h,96.66t/data=!3m9!1e1!3m7!1sV6b7-paROZxAfrjeb-dsxw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!9m2!1b1!2i31

Hi all.  I have not been on here in ages and ages.  I also am not even in Ireland, although I really, really wish I were.  Can I paint along too?  Hi Norah!  Hope everyone is doing ok during this mess.

Hello from lovely west Clare 

I'm not the most active member but am wondering when we finish our piece, do we download it here or to Sean? Sorry. I'd love  to try it. Thanks. Hope your all keeping well. Pauline

Great idea Sean, Most people will probably know this but just in case...In the google street app mentioned you can not only drive or walk along the street or road, but you can actually zoom into what you are looking at by using the + sign below the little compass on the right of the street image. its great for composing the image, I find places to paint with this regularly and then just go straight to them by shanks mare.  so walk along, turn perpendicular to the shop front for example and then zoom in for close-up.

Thats a terrific idea Sean and I'm sure you'll have lots of takers. I suppose we can have a cup if coffee first as usual and try to pretend its our regular Sat. morning.
