Two recent Connemara watercolours

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.

Three recent paintings

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.

Five days in Connemara 

If you’ve never been to the west coast of Ireland, do! It’s one of the most beautiful places on the planet. I’ve had the great pleasure to stay for five days on the Renvyle Peninsular along the Wild Atlantic way;  in the Renvyle House Hotel with John Hoar and 20 or so other artists. Here is a selection of paintings from the first few days. They are of the coastline around here, the little nearby village of Tully Cross with its church , Renvyle House itself with its palm trees and lovely grounds; and some rhododendrons (picked from the hedgerows) and chrysanthemums.
