SEPA is an association of amateur and professional painters who paint together regularly outdoors in S.E. Ireland. All artists are welcome. SEPA organises Ireland's 'Art in the Open' plein air festival. SEPA membership is free. NB. As with all Paint-Outs posted on Plein Eire, these events are simply notifications of intent by one individual to be at a particular place and time to paint. Each member's participation is entirely at his/her own risk. No responsibility for harm or loss of person or property on the part of anyone else is intended or implied.

Here are a few ideas for paint-out venues. Please add your own suggestions and we'll get a schedule together for the coming weeks. Your addfitional recommendations welcome.

Ballinkeele House

Newtownbarry House & Gardens

Dunamore Wood (Borodale) (no facilities)

Rosslare Harbour Lagoon


Wexford Beaches

Wexford Gardens

The Still Pond, near Enniscorthy

 As ever, it is weather permitting, so in case the organiser needs to cancel, please indicate by RSVP for each event so a single message will let everyone know if an event is 'On' or 'Off'.

In particular, it seems smaller villages where we have access to coffee and a bite and a chance to say'hello' are sought-after venues. Here are some suggestions:

I can’t get out this weekend and showers are forecast so I think I’ll reluctantly hang up my plein air hat for this year- we did well to get as far into November as this! There is a life painting day scheduled for Sunday December 9th in Castlebridge; if anyone is interested you can find the Castlebridge Art Studio page on Facebook and get in touch to check availability of spaces. There’s also weekly life drawing on weds nights and portrait session on Thursday mornings. See you all soon!

It looks like we could need shelter on Sunday with showers forecast so Wexford town seems like a good plan. Meet at the riverbank hotel for coffee at 11am. The tide will be coming in and full at 4pm. I’m hoping to paint some of the boats on that side of the bridge but if it’s too wet might venture into the town for cover. Also a last chance to catch some of the opera festival exhibitions!

Sunday looks like the best day of the week so long as storm Callum heads off when he’s supposed to. Ballycross has lots of apple laden trees, animals, cafe, stables etc and also fields of pumpkins which I thought might be fun to paint before they’re all harvested! Hope to see ye there on Sunday

Lads I won’t be out again tomorrow, just home from Kerry & I don’t think it would go down well to run off painting again! So if someone wants to pick a venue...

We got that one wrong. :-(

I don't think the forecast is encouraging for tomorrow morning so, forgive me but I'm going to catch up on other painting stuff along with the domestic stuff. Working on one for next weekend though.

I’m afraid I won’t be painting this Sunday or next again so can someone else pick a location please? I have no problem posting one but it probably makes more sense for someone who will actually be there to choose. I hope to be out with ye again after that!

Some of the usual suspects for posting a SEPA paint-out will be attending a workshop this weekend but the weather forecast is good for Sunday if anyone else would like to pick up the baton?
