Hi Margret, thanks for the friendship. I look forward to meeting you in Wexford!

Hello Margaret,

How are things? Good I trust.

I’m presently helping artist/educator Vicki Norman to organise a plein air workshop in May. The details are as follows. Give me a call (087 954 2783) if you need any further info.
Best wishes
Frank Hallinan Flood

5 days of painting on location in the beautiful surroundings to the north of Dublin. Tackling a different aspect of plein air painting each day, we will visit stunning sites with tonnes of inspiration for all.

We'll begin with a short study session each morning, a demonstration, discussion or presentation on themes such as how to select a subject, designing a painting, matching and harmonising colours, capturing atmosphere and creating focal areas. Then we'll head out to paint the wonderful boats, harbours, beaches and countryside.

With friendly support and guidance we will explore the possibilities of painting in the elements. This workshop is open to artists in all media with some experience of painting in their chosen medium.

Fee per person is 295 euros. Places may be secured with a 150 euro deposit.

Bookings are for the full 5 days from 10:00am to 5 :00pm

Please note that the fee includes the workshop only. No accommodation, meals or materials are included.

Contact or phone Frank 087 954 2782
