Is it OK to copy?

I'm always intrigued by people who look down their noses at fellow artists who copy the work of  other painters.

Hello Sean,

I can't wait to see your next appearance in one of Sally's blockbusters. It'll be great to see you picking up a gong at the Oscars to.

Cant wait now for the postman Sean - think the book I ordered is no.3 in a series and the cover looks different from your one (think the cover on your one would make a good painting of telly from the early days), hope to get up to the Botanic gardens some day this week for some sketching !

Hi Sean,

Great to have you join us on Plein Eire. All the better that you are a keen contributor and interested in the web as that is what keeps a community site like this one ticking. Within the site are several regional groups. We need more of those so everyone can be involved but close to you are Dublin Plein Eire and Dublin Sketchers.  You will find them listed under the 'Groups' tab and by joining you will receive notice of their paint-outs and sketching trips in the vicinity.

Enjoy the site.
