Errigal from Guinness Estate, Poison Glen 14x10'' on canvas

"Beautiful painting, Sally and  I love the way the warm ochres contrast with the cool blues,   and that reflection really clinches it. "

Skerries Mills

"Kyrle, you caught the essence of the place with that imposing image of the great windmill,   with its five arms  and the figures at the mini-market give great life to a  beautiful painting."

Farmers Market Skerries

"I commented on this yesterday but it didn't register.  I probably forgot to hit the ADD COMMENT button. I love the richness of the colours intermixing on the buildings  and the figures give great vibrancy to the image. A little gem,…"

"Lovely painting again Sean.  You've got great colours and movement in those scudding clouds. And I especially like the  glimpse of clear blue sky - an unusual feature in your paintings.  Hope we're not going to loose you now…"

The Canal at Oldbridge 8x10'' on canvas board

"Often one has to do a rigorous search to find any reflected lighted in the water, as the trees overwhelm everything. But you have caught it nicely here, making a lovely painting, Sally.  "

Magheraroarty 8x10''

"Sally, you caught the crab pots nicely in a classic composition and that sandy opening  to the sea helps make it a wonderful painting.  "

The Knot has been Tied

"A beautiful poignant scene,  where  the  decorated door-way becomes the  entrance to a new life with all  its possibilities and insecurities.   A lovely painting, Sally. "

Skerries Mills 7x9

"The reds give wonderful counterpoint to the greens and you have shown great restraint in putting down the  grass brushstrokes and just leaving them, without blending.    That gives great vibrancy to  a  lovely painting.…"

Is it OK to copy?

I'm always intrigued by people who look down their noses at fellow artists who copy the work of  other painters.

I'm fascinated by this example of  the supreme master of the  landscape, John Constable,  copying a work by Ruisdael that was painted almost 200 years before him in 1650. What's more, Constable got paid for it.   Figure out which is the copy.…

Hello Sean,

I can't wait to see your next appearance in one of Sally's blockbusters. It'll be great to see you picking up a gong at the Oscars to.

Thanks for your nice comments. Hope to see you in a future paintout in the SE soon.

Cant wait now for the postman Sean - think the book I ordered is no.3 in a series and the cover looks different from your one (think the cover on your one would make a good painting of telly from the early days), hope to get up to the Botanic gardens some day this week for some sketching !

Hi Sean,

Great to have you join us on Plein Eire. All the better that you are a keen contributor and interested in the web as that is what keeps a community site like this one ticking. Within the site are several regional groups. We need more of those so everyone can be involved but close to you are Dublin Plein Eire and Dublin Sketchers.  You will find them listed under the 'Groups' tab and by joining you will receive notice of their paint-outs and sketching trips in the vicinity.

Enjoy the site.
