The third annual Dublin Plein Air painting festival brought artists from all over Ireland and the world to scenic Fingal. The outdoor painting festival ran from the 17th to 23rd June and hosted paint outs, workshops and daily competitions in seven different locations around North county Dublin.

Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. Artists had the chance to paint both landscapes and seascapes and workshop tutors include the best of Irish and foreign Plein Air artistic talent and include Una Sealy – RHA , Kate Kos, Vicki Norman , Greig Neal – AURA, Dave West, Blaise Smith – RHA.  Today artists visited Balbriggan and created amazing works as they enjoyed the local scenery before the heavy rains arrived.
