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.

Nora is right, it's too cold at present. But Spring can suddenly appear, so we should be ready!

Hi Everyone!

This is a plea to anyone in the Dublin district who is going out plein airing who would be willing to collect me in Shankill, and bring me along with you.

I've had a knee operation and I'm recovering amazingly well and quickly.  I don't use crutches or anything else around the house.  BUT - I'm not allowed drive for another four and a half weeks, and I'm going stir crazy! 

So If you are heading out and would be willing to take me, lunch would be on me!

Wanna come southside?  I'm not free on Tuesday or Thursday.

I hope to be free next week, any suggestions re venue around the greater Dublin area?

Sorry to miss the trip to the Irish National Stud. In Dublin this month but at a family wedding on Saturday. My sister works there as manager, Annettte, say hello! She'll be the one with two labradors following her around. Great painting opportunities there. Look forward to seeing the work on line.

Such a beautiful place to paint, the Iris's along the pond were stunning last year, its great that you are getting free passes as it is expensive so thank you again Michael

To clarify. It is on - this Saturday 11-July.    I have arranged complimentary passes for all artists.  I posted the event on the 'Events' page last week and I hope I did that correct.  I look forward to seeing all interested on Saturday.
