"High skyline, limited palette, warm and cool contrasts all contribute to make this a great composition Dee. Well rendered."

"Love it Tony. Your clean lines and minimalist washes that I know from your landscapes are very evident even in this subject."

"Ah memories of youth.  I like this John as I grew up in the street you can see on the right. My best school pal lived in the large house on the corner with the brick chimneys. The gable you see with the green gate used to be the Methodist…"

"Very nice John. Foliage is never an easy subject for the watercolourist and you've nailed it beautifully here. Lovely play of light and shade."

"Wow John sounds like you were lucky not to be washed away.  Am back now from Italy where I had a wonderful time.  The weather was fantastic and very hard to leave to come back but hey, very enjoyable while it lasted."

Plein Air Dublin embraces the first day of Winter at Farmleigh

 

A crisp sunny day at Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park was the attraction for eleven (well under-layered) Plein Air Dublin painters on the 1st December for the last of the 2012 paint-outs.

hello John - thanks for your kind comment about my work. I'm answering you here because I can't find where to reply and now I've lost your message!!

Anyway, you asked about how I created the light "VINI" against the dark background? the paint was quite rich and when the shine had left the paper, I used a rigger with a tiny amount of water to push the paint aside and form the letters. used same technique with "LIQUORI" but paint was drying fast, it gave me the opportunity to paint thick dark value paint into damp and light value for some letters and light for the rest. 

cheers

Amanda

Hi John, definitely we have to meet during your visit. Let me know when you are planning to go to Italy, so we try to arrange some paint-outs.

Here many art schools, definitely bring discipline into work. In most dominated Classical Painting, but not in all schools, depends which one you choose really.

Architecture of Fiesole is like that, in small town they tried to fit everything :).

Thanks John. Happy New Year again!

Thank you for your nice advice about fresh flower and card. They really liked it.

Warm regards.

John

 

(I've tried email you directly thru Plein Eire but doesn't seem to be operative today).

A colleague can't take up his spot at People's Art on Stephen's Green this weekend - he's offered it to me - tho I think it will be too cold - I'd like to try it.
 
I asked Tom Scott if I could delegate it to him bit he's otherwise engaged- he suggested I ask you! Could you take charge of Plein Eire to Farmleigh on Sat am? If you can't -no prob - I'll break off from Green.


Best

Thanks John for arranging next Sat - and esp arrangement with clubjouse. I've added it to Events and PE Dublin page, as I didn't see them there.

See you Sat!

Tks - John O Flynn
