In 2014, the museum began its commemoration of the Great War with an exhibition on Lieutenant-Colonel George H. Morris (1872-1914) from Spiddal, which included a posthumous portrait of Morris by William Orpen. To mark the centenary anniversary of the armistice, the museum is hosting a one-day intermediate-level portrait painting course with artist Caitlyn Rooke. Strictly limited to 10 free places, interested parties must email a short submission to the museum stating why they should be considered (firstname.lastname@example.org). All materials provided.

Well, I took the plunge and picked up a fancy new phone that can take time lapses. Since a few of you were asking for wip shots of my sketching process, I decided to capture one on camera for my first video. As you can see it's pretty spontaneous and energetic…both things I want to see more of in my paintings. I'm using #panpastel and a battery powered eraser. #drawing #process #artistsoninstagram #timelapse
