Welcome to the site. By all means encourage your fellow painters to join the site if they are interested in painting outdoors. This is the place!
Gemma Tipton has been in touch already to discuss doing something to coincide with Kinsale Arts Week and we are working on that. Enjoy the first Plein Eire SW paint-out. I hope someone finds a few spare minutes to take some photos and to post them on the site later as a Blog of the day. Or it can be handier to post them to a Pix.ie account and then simply post the link. It helps folks to remember each other's names for the next time. Here is our welcome page ( http://pleineire.ning.com/page/welcome-page ). It mentions that it is a good idea to post your own photo as your profile image for the reason above - helps get to know each other and remember names. And there's other stuff to help new members find their way about.
Anyway, happy painting, enjoy Sunday and enjoy the site.
