G.V. du Noyer Deluxe I.G.A. Geological Painting Weekend: 9-11th February 2018

9 February, 2018 - 11 February, 2018

Workshop Leader: our fantastic artist is Shevaun Doherty


Shevaun Doherty is a botanical artist, natural history illustrator and art tutor living in Dublin. She’s very inspired by the natural world and enjoys the quiet meditation that painting from nature brings. She paints from life, usually plants and seeds that she has collected on her travels, but the occasional bug or feather gets painted too. She loves the challenge of trying to capture all the tiny details and colours.  Shevaun paints the things that capture her interest. Sometimes it’s the beauty of an object that draws her, but often her art begins with an interesting story. The challenge then is how to reveal the hidden beauty. Teaching helps her share her passion.

Venue: our amazing venue is Longueville House, near Mallow, Co. Cork.


There will be two half-day sessions of watercolour painting with Shevaun. An excursion to visit the beautiful George Victor du Noyer Exhibition at Crawford Gallery, Cork (40 mins by car) during the weekend will further inspire participants.
