Plein Air Watercolour Painting with Kasper Zier - Celebrating Heritage Week
Date/Time: Tue 16 Aug, 11am - 3:30pm
Age Group: Students/Adults
Join award winning watercolour artist Kasper Zier for a day of observational watercolour painting in the heritage town of Trim, Co. Meath. Exploring the narrow streets and impressive architecture of Saint Patricks Cathedral, Kasper will demonstrate his spontaneous painting technique. Following some light refreshments, paint alongside Kasper and receive one-to-one guidance if required. Drawing inspiration from the town’s surroundings, this relaxed, informal day will leave you with the tints and tips you need to create your own watercolour depictions of our historical, local community.
You will need to bring your own painting materials of choice and a packed lunch. Light refreshments will be provided by Solstice Café. Further information and exact location will be emailed to participants closer to the date.
This is an outdoor event please wear clothing suitable for all weather types. If due to undesirable weather conditions or changes in Covid guidelines, this event is postponed, we will contact you with an alternative date.
Kasper Zier is an award winning watercolour artist living and working in Dublin. His plein air painting style evokes freshness and spontaneity. Focusing on interesting shapes and form in his subjects rather than elements of detail, he translates this into pure visual language through his chosen medium. His varied subject matter includes interiors, street scenes and landscapes. Capturing the play of light with clear colour and an experienced balance of loose, expressive brushstrokes and ‘lost and found’ edges, he creates unique paintings full of atmosphere and character.Kasper Zier is a member of The Water Colour Society of Ireland.
