Oil painting of a beach near Clonakilty



Once again I was lucky enough to get my paint box out on a
 quiet beach near Clonakilty Co.Cork....
It was a beautiful sunny day with a nice breeze.

This is my latest Caravaggio graphite study, it's detail taken from
"The Entombment of Christ" This was completed using Derwent pencils.
I picked them up recently while wandering around my local art store and find
them great to work with.

Plein air at Achill sound

..another quick plein air, this time, the entrance to Achill Sound.
The channel here is quite narrow and so the racing tide whips
along with considerable fury. It is quite a dramatic spot

A plein air of a sunny day at Dugort, Achill
What a difference a day makes, the day before when I painted here
it was really showery and a little cold, but today its a nice warm
clear day. :)
