From pier at Annagassan

"Lovely work, Sally , with the light geometric rectangles of the buildings contrasting strongly with  the dark nebulous shapes of the  trees.  With it only 10"x 8", you got a lot into a little. "

Boyne Valley paintout Lough Ramor, Virginia. at Lounge, Lakeside Manor Hotel

June 9, 2018 from 11am to 3:30pm
Unfortunately we will have to postpone our drip on Saturday to Delvin Bog with Norah. Instead we meet this Saturday, in Lakeside Manor Hotel, Vitginia, Co.Cavan on the shores of Lough Ramor. The lake is the obvious attraction with its islands and marina.It is about one hour from Dublin and a direct drive on the N3.  The Lakeside Manor is about 1 mile BEFORE the town of Virginia.  You can’t miss it on the left hand side.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.…

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.
