Here we have two recent watercolours painted with the great John Hoar. The west of Ireland (edge of the world) and a snowy North Devon. These were painted fast and free.
I’ve sold a few of these lately so I couldn’t resist painting another just to keep me company .
I haven’t painted in acrylic for a while so here are two studies of the Poolbeg Chimneys or Stack as they are colloquially known, Dublin Port. One is of an evening flight heading to the airport and the other a colourful dawn.
Here are two quickly painted scenes- by quickly I mean as bold as I can, first wash quickly and confidently applied. Two very different days; a broody, cloudy, showery and windy day for the Windmill at Rye, East Sussex and a bright, clear day with the odd threat of a shower at St John’s Point, Donegal.,
Here’s a very quickly painted sunset view of the River Shannon in Ireland. Acrylic on canvas.
Two west of Ireland views. Paul Henry (1876-1958) painted hundreds of these type of subjects in oils. I’m using watercolour. John Hoar paints the most beautiful watercolours of the west of Ireland.
Inishbofin is a small island in the west of Ireland. You get a small ferry from the tiny port of Cleggan . I love it and here’s a painting overlooking the harbour where the ferry docks. If you get a chance to go- seize it!
