Dublin City shop and sketch at https://www.wynnshotel.ie/saints-scholars-lounge.html

November 30, 2019 from 11am to 4pm
Following on from last saturdays brilliant demo (thank you Kyrle), we thought we might meet in Dublin and go shopping for print supplies in Evans. Alternatively there is the Hugh Lane Gallery or the National gallery but weather permitting there are great oppurtunities for sketching down around Evans art, gather lots of sketches and inspiration for your print making. We meet at 11am at Wynns Hotel in the Saints and Scholars lounge before heading off.See More

November 16, 2019 from 11am to 3pm
This Saturday we are going to the Beautiful Botanic Gardens for chat, coffee, food, and some sketching, painting. There is a beautiful coffee shop in the Gardens, where we will meet at 11am and back again at 3pm.  I was over there recently, and the greenhouses are lovely and warm!  The trees have beautiful unusual colouring on them at the moment.  Dont obstruct any walkways etc if painting.  There is no problem with us using the greenhouses, but we cannot get in the way of the public!Hoping you…See More

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.…

Not just the National Gallery

In a first for the group, Boyne Valley Plein Eire, visited the National Gallery on Saturday, Jan 11, 2014.  Overall,   a total of 15 were in attendance.   While some members, painted in the locality,   most of us went on the gallery visit, and took in the Turner watercolours, the gallery in general as well as the Irish section.   There was much interchange of ideas and comment  among members as we toured the gallery, and   we even waited until 3pm when  The…

Possible to Process Credit Cards on Smart Phone

In a development that could be very useful for artists selling their paintings, there is now a Paypal facility that allows anyone to  process their customers'  credit cards on  their smart phone.    A  small device is plugged into the phone and the card is swiped through it in the normal way.

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.

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.
