"Sean a lovely watercolour. Your soft misty style transferred very nicely to architectural subjects or was it the other way around marine to architectural. Either way it works beautifully. "

Hay bales

"Your hay cocks are nicely rendered with light and shadows.   When I was young, just using a rope around  them,   with a horse,  I used to  pull them into the farm yard for the men to fork into the hay shed. …"

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.

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.
