Plein Air Painting Course with artist Tony Robinson
Merrion Square Park (weather permitting)
THIS COURSE IS NOW SOLD OUT
Course takes place Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September 2019, 11am - 5pm
Led by plein-air artist Tony Robinson, and inspired by Sorolla: Spanish Master of Light, this two-day course will bring participants outside with their canvases to learn key techniques for capturing light with paint.
Sorolla’s work is drenched in light, so vivid that you can almost feel the heat from the sun and the spray from the salty sea. Famed for painting outdoors (en plein air), Sorolla brought his large canvases everywhere, as he painted directly from the vibrant life happening before his eyes.
If the Irish weather fails to cooperate, the exclusive surroundings of the Gallery’s Friends Room, with views of Merrion Square, will provide shelter!
