Venice Virtual paint out at Venice on line

May 21, 2020 to June 20, 2020
As some of us are still not able to get out for some plein air, due to crowded parks, busy streets etc, it was suggested that we try another virtual paint out. This time it is Venice. There are lots of images on-line and I am sure google maps can be used. If anyone joins in it is best to post your painting in a blog. The blogs are the last box to the right of the screen, next to notes and tips. For some reason I dont see this on my phone so I find it easier to use a pc for blogs.See More

Covid 19 Howth virtual paint-out

This is one I found in my pile of un-finished paintings from Dublin Plein Air festival, I have tried to touch up some of it but I took no photos so I will wait till I can return out there some day to catch some of the deep colours I remember on the rocks in front of me. I remember the tide was coming in fast and I had to move Looking forward to trying a few from photos later today, take care all…

Visit to Sorolla exhibition National Gallery

A wonderful exhibition, worth a few return visits. I didnt get a group photograph but I think Kyrle did - you can add it on here if you like Kyrle. A few of us tried sketching in Merrion Sq afterwards and Kevin went to great extremes to find a few roofs to paint in the city centre…

I was only out a couple of times with the group, at Sandycove and Cabinteely a couple of years ago, but hope to do more.

Hi Norah. speaking of Second Sleep, I heard an interesting interview between Tubridy and Robert Harris the author who has just written a novel called just that. it has an interesting twist, its out on kindle and I just got it this minute. Its dystopian and I'm saying no more.

Hi Norah

you never disturbed me at all it was a pleasure to chat. I had the best time there, I have not enjoyed painting as much in a long long long time, I will definitely do more as soon as there is a paint out, I'll make sure I'm on it.

Hi Nora, my name might be familiar to you because my brothers-in-law & sisters-in-law live in Leixslip. Patsy & Elma(yoga teacher) have moved now but we used to visit them in Leixslip.
