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 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.
