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.

Seems that there are too many paint-outs tomorrow, so I've postponed the Dropping Well event.

Please join me this Saturday, 1st July, at 11.00am at the Dropping Well, Milltown Rd, Rathmines Great, Dublin 6.

There are waterfalls, wonderful trees drooping over the water, a rhino (!), and bridge views both of the bridge near the pub, and the other one a little further down, which is the oldest bridge on the river Liffey.

The weather should be a bit overcast, but not wet.  Coffees and loos are available, and there is plenty of parking.

Thanks James but didn't see the comment until 12. I have posted events regularly in the general area but not under any group. Places to park around Dublin can be difficult but if anyone has ideas I can host as I know people find posting an event difficult. Anyone can post an event and ask someone else to host - us that ok Tony as we often may have to cancel hosting but someone else is usually happy to be there. ,

 I hope James had some company yesterday. Good to see some activity here after a long hiatus. Don't miss today's harbour paint-out, open to all artists, (Saturday 13th May) with members of Dublin Painters and Sketchers. Perhaps a few can set up a rota to propose a weekly paint-out in Dublin? There will also be a painting demonstration on ‘marine painting’ on Saturday 20th May. In addition, an artist at work on a painting, daily during the exhibition, painting critique sessions for amateur artists and exhibition guided tours. Whyte’s will be offering a painting valuation session during the club exhibition.

I won't get out for the next month as we have our son coming home from Australia Patsy but I am sure either pebv or dublin group will post an event here.  I find it always better to check the events page around wed or thursday.

Please let me know where the next event will be?
