Banana Leaves

"A very lovely drawing Sally! I should have taken a leaf from your book and gone there also, but the heat would have driven me bananas. Yes Caroline's venue for today was a great choice, thanks Caroline."

Banana Leaves

Plein Eire Boyne Valley at Coffee Shop in the gardens

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

Hi Sally, was looking at some of the work of one of my favourite British watercolourists this evening, Edward Seago - fantastic, and came across this. Remind you of anything? I have one quite similar by a very well-known artist from Co.Meath.  Hope all well with you, missed not seeing you at AITO.

Cheers Sally, thank you.  Not sure if I'll be in the area or not as yet, depends where you all might be, but I might be. Won't be in Donegal however, as boys on hols now and duty calls. Will see you at AITO soon I hope.

Hi Sally hope you had a great time in Connemara, always love to keep in touch with BVPA. and view all your results.  Where are you guys off to this coming weekend? Getting near AITO week now so hopefully will see you soon.

You're right of course Sally they are paintings I suppose. Hope you enjoy the ploughing and avoid getting wet. Looking forward to seeing your results.
