Following the abbey painting, I attempted to depict the round castle which dominates the skyline in Nenagh town. Like the abbey painting, I used vivid colours. I painstakingly did each stone. Consequently, this painting was in my life for a few months.
Painted from my mind’s eye. I wanted to do an historical scene, and I’ve an interest in Later Medieval Ireland. I spent some time at it. The result was a let down; even though the sky and landscape were good, the figures looked a bit simple and not fully realised. I’ve never attempted an historical painting since.
