View Of Ballycotton From A Barley Field Near Ballynamona Beach

Painted outside in the open air in fine weather. This field is next to Ballynamona Beach. I liked using Sap Green in the places where green is. For years I’ve been mixing yellow and blue to get green. I didn’t put on sun cream on the third day and my right arm got an unmerciful burning!

Ballycotton Island on an April Evening

This is the island as seen from my house looking south. I have to thank my sister who alerted me to the unusual light on the buildings that evening. Sold.

Ballycotton Pier at Dusk

Ballycotton Pier at Dusk

Ballycotton pier and harbour is just 3 miles from where I live. Behind the pier are two islands, the taller one has a lighthouse which is the bright red light in the painting. The bright lights illuminating the pier were a satisfying contrast with the deep indigo of the sky. Indeed this is my favourite colour to depict a sky.
