Cloyne Round Tower – Sold

Cloyne Round Tower

Painted this in two and a half weeks in December 2009. Used artistic licence in the clouds and the tower itself. The clouds are coloured more purple than reality, while the shaded stones are green; I thought they’d go nicely with the sky. Cloyne is a nearby village, with a history stretching back to the 6th century. Sold.

Garryvoe Church and Graveyard

Garryvoe Church and Graveyard

About half a mile from my home stands an old Medival church, surrounded by headstones dating as early as the late 18th century. It’s one of the most intact churches in the region. I was pleased with the soft indirect lighting effect on the stonework. I spent over a month painting it.
