First in a series: Twelve Bens – Large
August 2, 2017
The West of Ireland is one of the wildest corners of Europe. The Twelve Bens are a grouping of mountains that rise up from the end he of the sea and roll inland.
The structure of the paintings are inspired by the work of Irish painter Eileen Meagher. At times I have attempted to emulate her hyper realistic style, but for this series I explore lighter brushwork to create an impression of the low clouds and fog enveloping the rolling landscape.
