Your Site For Artists Who Paint Outdoors

hello from Fredericksburg Virginia, USA. I will be traveling to Ireland April 15-29th. My husband has an orthopedic meeting in Westport at Knockcranny Hotel and Spa. We are renting a car and coming from Dublin where we fly in. After four days in Westport we are going to head up to Northern Ireland (we did lower Ireland last year). This year my husband is insisting I ship my paints over and paint! Is there a place to buy gamsol in Dublin? Also is there anyone near the hotel that would like to paint one day? Please let me know! I would LOVE to meet other artists. I founded a plein Air group here. It is going strong! We have 8-10 artists, sometimes 15 show up each week to paint! I think I can ship my paints over, just not sure about the gamsol. Can contact me on Facebook under Patty OBrien fredericksburg  if anyone wants to correspond, thank you!!!!

I dont think Gamsol is available here but you will get low odour solvent in any of the Art Shops. Winsor and Newtown do one called Sansador but I have never tried it. I think Sennelier have one too and you will find good quality supplies in any of these shops.  Tony in Spectrum art stocks a great supply of lovely Michael Graham oil paints as well as Rosemary and Co brushes.

Easons in O'Connell street  have a limited but ok supply upstairs and would be easy for you to find.  April in Westport will be lovely and if you keep an eye on events here nearer the time perhaps ? There is usually a paint out around Dublin most saturdays so that might be another option for you if you are staying in Dublin for a few days ?.  I hope it all goes well and you have a great trip. 

Thank you so much! I will keep my eye out for any events on this site. I have been wanting to get some Rosemary brushes! Thank you for all your information!
