Welcome to Plein Eire website.
There are some but I'm surprised that more members of the site do not paint in pastels, it being surely one of the best media for working outdoors. Perhaps you will encourage a trend! Its a site about meeting up to paint (at least when the weather improves) so I encourage everyone to use their own photo or self-portrait as a profile page image. Love the dog, though.
I look forward to seeing your postings. More members join than actually get involved with discussions, posting blogs, asking questions etc. which is a pity because one only gets out of these things in proportion to what you put in. You can post your paintings and drawings under 'Artwork' but they must be plein air rather than studio work for the purposes of this site. That is a good way to get a bit of feedback.
Enjoy the site. I hope you find some inspiration and new friends here.
