Balbriggan Paint out

Thank you Caroline for organising a great location today.  Normally I shy away from harbours but I have never seen such a lovely array of boats and think that it is worth the agony of learning to draw boats and get out of our comfort zone - the light bouncing around them was glorious and how easy Sean makes painting them look with his beautiful paintings.

Michael painting boats, he has eyes in the back of his head :)…
