Toe in the Water Paintout in Listoke 30.01.2016

Well done to John McManus and Frank Hallinan Flood especially who braved the elements and painted en plein air and plaudits too to the rest of us who retreated to the dubious comfort of a glasshouse.…

Boyne Valley paint-out 26th September, 2015

Another lovely day in Listoke Gardens even more glorious than the last one. Big welcome back to Catriona. Full marks to Caitriona, with her new hip, and to Rita, with her very new knee, for coming. Glad we had such a lovely day especially for them.

Susan, not in photograph, is elsewhere 'finishing…

Boyne Valley paintout - 15th August, 2015 Monasterbice

Svetlana and Roisin cleverly missed the photo shoot.  Lovely day at Monasterboice.  Some members went further up the road to Mellifont.  Either way it was going to be a spiritual experience.  Monasterboice was a difficult subject as the crosses and round tower are so tall and so close.  But Svetlana…

Boyne Valley Paintout Clogherhead, Co.Louth 20th June, 2015

Its always difficult to get a meeting place for Clogherhead.  However, Forge Field Farm Shop and Coffee Shop in Termonfeckin fulfilled the need beautifully.  Again, we neglected to get a group photo.  Had we done so it would have featured Anna, Sean, Gerry, David, Michael, John McManus, Colm and…

Boyne Valley Paintout Balbriggan 14th June, 2015

Regrettably we neglected to get a group photo of the painters who turned out today. I have no ‘action shots’ either so if anyone else can supply some please do.

The usual Saturday date had to be postponed because of a forecast of terrible weather.  So we met on Sunday 14th June.   The weather on Sunday was glorious.

 

Six and a half Boyne Valleyers turned up – Sean, David, Phil Hofler, Gerry Smyth, first-time-;painting-with-us Brendan and…

Sonairte, Laytown, paintout 23rd May, 2015

Thanks to Dee for the photographs.  I'm really sorry to have missed another great day.

 

All the straight-out-of-the oven scones have been demolished.  Sorry I missed them.  Great to see Paddy again, also in the picture Caroline, Sean, Anna, Dee, Kay, Bob and Roisin.  Not…

Ardgillan, Boyne Valley Paintout, 16.05.2015

At least twelve of us fell for Sean's Bluebell propaganda and turned up in Ardgillan today.  However he did find a glade of bluebells and the image below shows proof of him collecting poof of bluebells.  We had a truly great day and he used his influence to ensure beautiful weather.  Thanks Sean.…

Boyne Valley Plein Eire - Virginia 2nd May 2015

Forecast for to-day warned all week that today would be very cold with heavy rain all day.  Nevertheless five B V members showed up in Virginia to paint bluebells!   We spent two hours over breakfast/coffee in the vain hope that rain might ease off.   It didn't really.  But we set out anyway.  Some lovely paintings were produced, also a few very wet in wet ones.  Here we are before setting out.…

Boyne Valley paintout - Dun Laoghaire 25th April 2015

Well, not a paintout exactly, although most of us did bring materials.  But the weather was dreadful with heavy rain.  However, we were in the right place because part of the plan was to visit the 137th Annual Exhibition of The Dublin Painting and Sketching Club and to start the day with the Portrait Painting Demonstration by Jim Doolan.

It was wonderful.  Security man, John, sat as a jolly model for Jim.  Jim used water colours. Among many other tips he told us that he did not eschew…
