En Plein Air Painting

Ballinakill, Co. Laois will host its inaugural ‘Twin Trees’ festival this year, with a strong focus on the ‘En Plein Air’ outdoor painting event. The festival is inspired by the 150th anniversary of Sir Edward Lutyens, the celebrated garden designer who created the exquisite formal garden at Heywood Gardens, minutes from the village of Ballinakill.
