Eastern Sky At Sunset From The Strand Field Cliff

One of those rare occasions where the sky in the East reflects the setting sun in the west in spectacular colours.

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!

View of Ballingwilling Strand Looking East – Sold

View of Ballingwilling Strand Looking East

This was painted in early Spring, 2012 and to keep out of the cold air, I would sit in the front passenger seat of my car and paint what I saw outside the windscreen. This is a nice, quiet beach about a mile east of Garryvoe beach.

Midwinter View of Garryvoe

In late December, 2009 a severe cold stretch of weather began that continued into early 2010. This painting records that time. Fortunately, because where I live is so close to the sea we were spared the worst of the snow and ice as can be seen from the fields, where muted greys and browns can be seen rather than a continuous blanket of white. This is my third painting in my series of painting the same view over four seasons.

Summer View of Garryvoe

Summer View of Garryvoe

This is the first of my views of Garryvoe the place where I live. The view is from one of our fields, the ‘High Field’. I had been wanting to do this view for a few years before getting around to doing it. At the time, it was a very ambitious goal. The sky appealed to me a lot, I like how over in the east and south opposite to where the sun sets, the sky goes purple to a deep blue near the horizon.
Painted from 28th June to 23rd September, 2006.
