Dublin Plein Air Workshop

Una Sealy RHA is an Irish artist based in Fingal, County Dublin. She paints domestic interiors, streetscape, landscape and portraiture. She paints from observation and often the compositions evolve organically, with elements appearing and disappearing before the final arrangement is arrived at. The works form a kind of visual autobiography.

Jock Nichol is a plein artists who likes painting out doors because he gains an intimate understanding of the nuances of a place that can not be derived from working in the studio. His work is a direct response to the everyday landscape surrounding his home, particularly the marginal land around the bogs and forests. These places hold an understated beauty and mystery. His last workshop two years ago at Dublin Plein Air was a great success as he has a great knowledge of painting out doors in Ireland. Jock Nichol attended Edinburgh College of Art and since moving to Ireland in 1991 he has exhibited widely and has work in public and private collections in Ireland and abroad.

David is a popular artist at Dublin Plein Air and an Irish watercolor artist working in County Meath, Ireland. “My style of painting in Watercolour is loose and uses shapes with lots of different textures. My inspiration comes from the land and urban buildings around me in my paintings. I am a member of the following clubs U.W.S and W.S.O.I and my passion is to pass on what I know about watercolor to others.
