Plein Eire Dublin Paint-Outs

A 'Paint-Out' can be arranged by anyone. Even an impromptu session can be posted here if the weather is promising and you have an afternoon or a morning to spare. We try to meet regularly. Just decide on a time and a suitable venue and post a notice on the group page and 'Events'.

Time and location to be posted in advance both on "Plein Eire Dublin" and "Events" pages on this Plein Eire site.

RSVP on 'Events' for notice to be sent to you in the event of any change in plans or check this Plein Eire Dublin Group page on the morning of a paint-out .

  1. Nominate a time and location with reasonable painting prospects.
  2. Identify a local cafe or hostelry for artists to meet in before and after.
  3. Indicate if there is parking available nearby, and if its free or metered.
  4. Post the suggestion to 'Events'and copy and paste the link to the Comment Wall below on this page.

Members may also propose paint-outs at other times as suits them and ask for other members who may be available to join them.

Sean Quinn has posted about a paint pout in Malahide Castle, on Monday 23rd October.   Meet at the Avoca cafe.

At the very tail end of a fantastic week in Venice I caught a bug that has turned into a chest infection.  I'll have to see what state I'll be in on Monday, but I painted there in the Summer and it is a good spot.

Meant Helen - not Wendy!   Oops!

We had seven painters in Greystones yesterday.  Brilliant considering the short warning!  Catriona, Wendy, Denise, Paula, Svetlans, Brian & myself.  The weather was good, and a kind lady, Caroline Hughes, made us cups of coffee.  She and her husband Alan are interested in joining in on further excursions.
