Howth paint out at Howth, North County Dublin

May 5, 2018 all day
The beautiful and diverse village of Howth beckons for this saturday.  Subjects range from a huge variety of boats, old village houses if you meander the back streets and of course the wonderful heather and gorse are in bloom for those seeking a touch of vibrant colour.  In a change from previous paint outs I plan to arrive around 10am to paint , then break for lunch around 1pm before either trying a second painting or whatever the mood takes on the day.  Hope to meet some of you thereSee More

Lovely to met you both today Margeret and Rosemary.  Here is a link to that book by Pamela Kay. She paints in watercolour, oils and gouache, her book on goache is not a "how to paint" book but has some tips, she also has a lovely turn of phrase and great paintings and drawing in this book
