For last week’s workshop (October 17th), the group moved outside to make some paintings, after looking at examples by Sligo-based artists Barrie Cooke and Sean Mc Sweeney, both of whom have drawn significant inspiration from the Sligo landscape. We worked outside at Ballymote castle, using acrylic paints, a series of papers and different surfaces, and different tools such as pallette knives, and PVA to mix in textures. To see some of the paintings made by the group, go to the ‘artwork‘ page.
