Plein Air Tours and Workshops
Paint your way around Ireland
2016 . . . More to come
In early September 2016 we hosted a painting workshop that
combines the best of Ireland touring with the customised
instruction of Crystal Beshara, artist from Ottawa, Canada.
Crystal is not only a talented artist she is well experienced in teaching and leading workshops. The mediums used were watercolour, pen & ink or soft pastel. All levels participated and enhanced their art.
More about Crystal, her art and instruction on her website.
Update: We received rave reviews from participants on this trip despite having to move two of the plein air sessions indoors due to rain. The beauty of Ireland saved the day. Contact me to receive information about our next workshop/tour.
We assembled a video of a few of the sights, nature and paintings: Plein Air Ireland: 2016
