New challenges, good company and cake…can’t argue with that.

It was undoubtably an exhausting but incredibly satisfying weekend, spent with a great group of artists. They all worked incredibly hard and were great craic to boot. Thank you to all who came.

I’m not sure yet if I can fit in another weekend workshop here in Ireland this year but I will be doing one in September in Duxbury MA in the states and of course I will also be giving a one day workshop for working artists in March here in Dublin.

The Schoolhouse for Art is a great venue, full of history and perfect for our needs.

Each day took the format of some talking and slides for an hour or two in the morning punctuated with exercises to illustrate what we were learning.

Then in the afternoon the group worked through painting one or two small still life compositions using a six stage process.  I also painted and completed a larger demo painting each day.
