Painted from life. I was sitting on the scorching hot sand for two hours painting this. A heatwave was in full force.
Captures an amazing sunset over Garryvoe beach in early December 2011. The tide was going out so the sky is reflected wonderfully on the wet sand. This place is a 3 or 4 minute walk from my house.
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.
