Listoke House

"Lovely Noel, once again the building is expertly rendered with your draughtsmanship very evident in this watercolour, wish I had something to show for such a great day in Listoke, Still, the company and chat was reward enough for me."

Listoke House

"Lovely work Noel. Great combination of the complementary rusty reds and dark greens. Also like how the subject occupies the top half of the page, as the empty foreground draws your eye straight away to the focal point. Lovely."

Virtual Paint out in Howth

When Howth was mentioned as a Virtual Paint Out, I started looking for subject matter. I came across this image and I couldn't resist having a go. The scene is so evocative of Howth and during this lockdown I taught I would love Fish & Chips from Beshoffs. This image is copyright, but I don't know who the photographer is. I also reminded…

Hi Noel,

I haven't worked outdoors which is why I joined,I figured it is time I did. I usually worked from photos and memory and sometimes just made it up as I worked through a painting. I am based in Bettystown.

I'll be there Noel, I thought about it, but was afraid it would be difficult to set up for everybody, but your use of Zoom is a great idea, Id love if some others joined in.

Here is a watercolour of the clock tower in Slane (painted early morning yesterday ... with no-one around).

Either I painted the left hand clock at 7:30 and the right-hand one at 7:55 ... or this is a gentle reminder that time is a human construct :)
