A trip down to Hook Head and I decided I couldn't paint the lighthouse yet again, so pushed myself to find something different. It didn't help either that the sea was almost dead calm. Anyway, I found myself being drawn to the abstract shapes created by the distinctive Hook Head rocky outcrops. I eventually settled for this pattern, moved stuff around a little, but not that much. I'm now thinking of doing a series of these.

Michael this is only super. I love your orange on the rocks that beautifully compliments your turquoise water. not often you get a calm day at Hook, but do be careful 'moving stuff around', you could seriously damage your back!! There's a big difference between rocks and rhubarb. Ha Ha. Well done again.

Great subject, extremely well executed. Well worth the push, it shows there is a painting around every corner.
