Well well Kevin, can't imagjne not bumping into you in the village of Dunmore East. I see your style has developed well since our last encounter. I love your rendering of the Dunmore East lifeboat. My cousin, Paddy Billy Power was coxswain of the Dunmore East lifeboat for many years and received many awards for his service. I hope to get to a paint out soon. J

Not sure yet, Kevin, where we’re off to this weekend. Might you be in the area? We went to Virginia last Sat. It was beautiful and I’m sure we’ll do it again sometime. You missed a great time at  the Dublin Fest.  And Connemara was its usual very enjoyable with a great crowd numerically and craicwise.  Don’t forget we’re off to Donegal for a few nights 19th August.   Might you join us there?

I like your use of the w/c pencils.  That barge does look interesting and I’m sure, although I really know nothing about it,  looked very foreign in Wexford. 

I think I’ve already sent you the Donegal details but if you can’t find them and are interested let me know. All the best. Sally

thank you very much!

Mainly a "watercolour artist", my paintings are representational works of the ordinary streets, countryside and coastal areas that surround us daily. My passion is for painting buildings and boats and I love to find that unusual viewpoint of familiar places. I like to think of watercolour as an act of Faith, Hope and Clarity, as one well-known artist once described it. Have Faith in ones ability, Hope it turns out alright and endeavour to maintain the Clarity  I also enjoy drawing very much.

Beethoven Portrait

As this is the year that celebrates the 250th anniversary of the birth of arguably the greatest composer that ever lived, Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), I thought I would try doing a portrait of him as I am a fan of classical music. For this I decided to return to my original working media of pen and ink. It took a while but am quite satisfied with the result.

Portraits and life drawing not my usual forte, but have to say I enjoyed doing this. …

Covid-19 Studio Works 3

Never painted so often! Another one from the studio, with a change of atmosphere. 'Rainy Day at Selskar Street'. Again my favourite paper Saunders Waterford rough, 10x7.

Covid-19 Studio Works 2

'All Moored Up' at Wexford Quays. Another studio effort on Saunders Waterford rough 10x7.

Spent best part of the afternoon on this one from a photo. Three of Wexford's fleet of mussel-dredgers, featuring 'Ede Cunze', 'Cecilia' and 'Noordster', moored alongside at Common Quay.…

Covid-19 Studio Works

Well, as we are all doing our best to self isolate at the current time, it is nice to relieve some of the trying hours by indulging in some painting. Because of the 'lockdown' restrictions it is a great excuse to catch up on some work in the studio, spare room or on the kitchen table. Staying safe now is our main priority, and staying indoors is our best way of helping those health care workers on the front-line to cope with their daunting and dangerous work. Here are two I did recently from…
