Bullock Harbour. 22nd July 2017

"Painting en plain air is always partly about the experiences you have while you paint.  The sights, sounds and smells all somehow become part of the piece you are working on.  There is freshness to plein air work."

Bullock Harbour. 22nd July 2017

14" X 18" Oil on linen canvasIt was a beautiful day for painting. Yachts with their spinney up, canoes, even the dreaded jet ski's. And strange craft roamed the skies too. The Bray Air Show was on, and I saw formation flying, turbo prop planes,…

From National Yacht Club. 8th July 2017

"Thanks Shiela.  I need to just look at my photos and make sure the lines of the boat are right.  Painting something that is sailing past you is going a little too quick for comfort.  Gary has contacted me so I think I have a client!"

Off to paint in Sardinia!

I've been weighing every art pad and canvas I've got to try and fit what I need into Ryanair's miniscule baggage.  And as you are aware, fellow artists - I normally take evervthing except the kitchen sink.  And my pink and white polka - dotted shopper will have to remain at home.

I'm going with thirteen others from the Dublin Painting and Sketching Club.  It is a return visit, as the Sardinians visited here earlier in the year and experienced our delightful showery days.  They…

I'm glad you are on the mend Val it sounds like you are having a holiday of sorts. Would the staff be annoyed at us turning your room into a studio , who knows maybe it would add a little colour to the place?

Hi Valerie,

Are you going up to the Pumpkins? I plan to go but don't know where it is. You might tell me.

Regards

David

Thank you.

Thanks, Valerie. Delighted you are coming to AITO again. Abbey B&B is a good one and very close by.  I have been told of another offering no breakfast but clean, generous rooms for €250 for two sharing for 7 nights (ie.  €125 each!). The rooms have 3 beds in them, so they are quite spacious and the place is one block uphill from the Abbey B&B. If you have friends considering making the trip who don't mind sharing and perhaps they can't get into the Abbey, tell them to contact me straight away.

Hi Valerie

As I have said before 'I need all the friends I can get' glad to have you as one of them.

Kind Regards

Tom
