"Terry always brightened up the day, when he turned up for a paint-out. I'll miss our discussions (sometimes borderline arguments!) about painting. A huge intellect, but beneath it all a true gentleman and just a really nice guy."

"It was great to get out again with the group, Dick. Thanks for organising these outings. That vague object with the white hat, in the distance, is the "lesser-spotted McGuire" in its natural habitat, i.e. near water!"

Making an Exhibition of Myself!

I have an exhibition running at the moment in the Cedars Hotel, Rosslare Strand (continues until 29th September), and to draw attention to it, I've decided to paint occasionally in the hotel lobby. I did my first session last Wednesday afternoon and got this far after about three hours or so (the painting is 20" x 24" oil on canvas - I'm using a small plein air study as a reference - the scene is near the Blasket Interpretive Centre in West Kerry):-…

Another Studio Painting from Plein Air Reference

I just completed this studio painting, based on a plein air I did in 2010. One of my favourite places to paint, this spot is on the coast road between Fethard and Hook Head.

Some Studio Work from Plein Air Reference

I started to so some larger studio paintings from plein air reference material a few weeks ago. I've been concentrating on not just copying plein airs on a larger scale (nigh impossible anyway), but rather embellishing them by doing things like adding figures, playing around with texture, and using varying brushstrokes. These are my most recent three:-

 

Summer Morning, Coumeenoole (West Kerry)

  Hi Michael  I had a great day at the Wild Fowl Santuary. Thanks for making me so welcome. Hope the sunny south east supplies us with some more good sunny days.

Hi Michael... It wasn't me who mentioned it, but Tullow does have a riverside walk. If it helps, I can go and do a recce re access and parking as I don't live far from there. Unfortunately I won't be able to join you all for this Sunday, or next, as my one and only nephew is coming over to visit us, so fingers crossed for the one after.

Hi Michael,

Many thanks for making me so welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed our paint out at Johnstown Castle but was unfortunately unable to go to Curracloe due to a tummy bug. I'm looking forward to meeting you all again at the next paint out.

Hi Michale,

Yes Michael, it's the same me! Left EI since the end of 2009 though and self-employed now. Looking forward to participating in the paint-outs at the end of the month and catching up with you again.

Best,

John

Michael, your painting from St. Mullins is strong and wonderful.   I really love it.  You caught the intensity of the place.
