"There really is no such thing as Art. There are only artists." E.H. Gombrich 'The Story of Art'

Mainly a "watercolour and pen & wash artist", my paintings are representational works of the ordinary streets, countryside and coastal areas that surround us daily. I also love drawing very much and I suppose my longest lasting relationship has been with the humble pencil since first been able to hold one.

Boat Studies at Rosslare Safe

"Great studies expertly drawn Kevin. I love boats too, love being on them - especially the ones on the west coast going across to the beautiful islands, the rougher the sea the better."

"Many thanks Sally and Kyrle. Yes, Sally I love boats....looking at them and drawing them, not sailing in them however. Ha ha Kyrle you remember the old 'figure eight' trick. Thanks my friend for your very kind comment."

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

Hi Kevin, congrats on selling the great painting. Had no doubts about it flying away. Well done, it is a beauty. Kyrle

What do you mean you haven't done any painting for a while? What makes these urban sketches and not paintings??  You have a great foundation for a collection of Buildings of Wexford there.  

We're going to the Ploughing tomorrow and I'm going to bring my little bag with me.  That is one of the big attractions of Urban sketching - its so easy to accommodate the materials about your person, in your pockets, handbag etc.  We'll see what happens.

Sheila 2020

As it was her birthday last week, thought I would tackle another effort at drawing my God daughter Sheila. Reasonable happy with the result in pen and ink.

Sail on the Norfolk Broads

Small w/c 7ins x 6ins from a photo sent to me by my friend Linda in East Anglia. Used only three colours altogether, Payne's Grey, Raw Umber and Olive Green. Hopefully will get to visit the area at some stage in the future as it looks so beautiful.

Park House Gatelodge

Out walking last week I passed this well-known landmark and did a quick pencil sketch from which I completed this painting yesterday. It's on Saunders Waterford 300lb rough paper and measures 7.5ins x 11.5 ins.
