"Plein Air Painting in Ireland with Joe Sweeney"
May 21-25, 2018
 

Join Joseph Sweeney on a plein air painting getaway in scenic Donegal, Ireland, homeland of Joe’s ancestors, the Mac Sweeney’s! Located along the breathtaking, unspoiled northwest coast of Ireland, Donegal’s high sea cliffs offer sweeping vistas ideal for plein air painting! Enjoy specially arranged accommodations at Castle Murray House on McSwyne’s Bay, near the idyllic fishing port of Killybegs, as well as excursions to historic Donegal Castle, the spectacular Slieve League Cliffs, and St. John’s Point Lighthouse. Draw or paint the stunning mountain and coastal views in your choice of media, with expert advice on color mixing, capturing light and atmosphere, and creating a composition. Instruction will focus on oil, acrylic, and pastel, but experienced watercolorists are welcome.
