My Painting trip to Achill 9th -14th June was very successful. I had 13 artists with me and we managed to paint 'en plein air' every day. The first day was bright and sunny and the other 3 days were cloudy and cool. Many artists commenced their painting outdoors and finished them back in the hotel which provided us with a room to paint in. Many thanks to Ann, Clody, Dorothy, Eilish, Fionnuala, John, Maeve, Mercedes, Michael, Noirin, Pam, Sally and Sheila for their dedication and company. Also many thanks to Peter and Loretto Connaughton from the Achill Sound Hotel who looked after us all so well during our stay.
This year's Painting Day in the Bay Garden, Camolin. Co Wexford was held on wednesday 21st August 2019.
We arrived at 10am for a cuppa and introduction, then Frances MacDonald gave us a guided walk in the garden. Then after my introductory talk we commenced painting in the garden. We had a break for lunch at 1pm and then after lunch around 2pm we returned to our easels and painted till around 4.30pm. Unfortunately the weather turned inclement and we sough shelter in the tearooms. Then I did a critique of the work accompanied by a cuppa before leaving. Thanks again to Frances and Iain MacDonald for facilitating painting in their beautiful gardens and the wonderful lunch they provided. Thanks also to all the 12 artists who joined us for the day
Maria and Sheila.
My Painting trip to Antequera in May has been cancelled due to circumstances outside my control.
The Painting trip to Antequera went well. I had 8 artists with me. The town is ideal for painting with a hill top castle and numerous squares and churches dotted around the old town. We also made two trips out -one to the Torcal National park and also to La Joya village. See picture above. Thanks to Diane,Edwina, Elizabeth,Eileen, Gwen,Marie,Noreen and Rose for joining me and also to our guide there Jean whose help was invalauable.
