Hi Kay

Welcome to Plein Eire outdoor artists’ network website. 

Whether experienced artists or newcomers to plein air painting, new members keep the site alive. Your questions, comments, artwork and input help to stir the pot.  Join in to get most out of Plein Eire.

The site is quite simple and intuitive. There are tabs across the top of the page to bring you to the main areas of the site.  Fresh comments and activity appear under ‘Latest Activity’ in the left-hand column of the home page and the most recent artwork appears at the top of the main centre column.

Members should read the Guidelines tab before posting artwork.

As a member, you automatically have your own page. Here are some tips to make the most of yours.

I suggest the tabs to explore next are ‘Groups’ and ‘Events’ to find out who and what Plein Eire offers near you.

Finally, an accepted Friend Request allows members to communicate with one another privately – perhaps to exchange phone numbers or car-pool etc., without the communication appearing on the Latest Activity feed.

There is a lot more to explore on Plein Eire and I hope you find friends, encouragement, new ideas and inspiration within, as I have.

Happy painting,

Plein Eire Administrator.
