I’ve sold a few of these lately so I couldn’t resist painting another just to keep me company .
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.,
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!
Three watercolours from another workshop with John Hoar. Here is a snowy scene and two west of Ireland paintings. The large white cottages are of the east end of Inishbofin island, County Galway. Can’t wait to be back there in May.
