Art in the open 2012 - Quick Draw - for the charity




 "B&B"

 I sold this painting on the spot for charity. 


  I began by observing how Leon Holmes begins his masterpiece..I only have less than 1 hour and 42 minutes to finish MY painting. Gotta run!

ps. I also watched him to finish this one.. Here is a real treat for you - VIDEO!!


 Irish people are so easy going and it was a pure joy to just chat with everyone while painting.
As last year, I handed over the brushes to all the children that came across. And as last year, line formed super quickly!!

 Here is Kevin testing out those Rosemary&Co´s long flat brushes.

 Orchestra started to play so i had to interrupt the painting and take a few reference photos..

 Graham Booth really can pull off beautifull watercolor paintings!

 The "buzz" is on. I think the whole Wexford arrived on the main street.

 Michael, I just love those soft figures!

 2 hour limit is up, time to relax with a cup of coffee :)

 Rosa did a great job!

Lets sell some paintings for the charity!

Thank you very much!
It was a real treat just to see how people begun and finished those paintings in a such tight time frame. But that is what the landscape painting is all a about, you never know what the mother nature will throw you at.
Next year I am going to paint all that crowd!

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is
also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/
