"A lovely painting Karen. The fading light and setting in of night is very evident here. Very nicely portrayed. Beautiful values and muted colours."

"Well Irene that is quite beautiful! That surface on the water is reflecting the soft background wonderfully. Lovely flowing colours and just the right amount of detail in the foreground. I can tell you loved creating that one!!"

Castletown Stream 1

"Thanks Kevin, It sort of painted itself, I knew I would put the highlights in later when it dried, and at one point I stopped painting around the focus as I knew I would crop it . "

Thanks for the nice welcome Kyrle I will be going to the one in Dublin anyway and looking forward to that. So maybe get to meet you there.

Hi Kyrle! Thanks for the warm welcome and looking forward to getting outside to paint now that the weather is more tolerable here.

Cheers Kyrle, yea was delighted it sold on the first day. Amazing.

Hi and thank you very much for your kind welcome!

Actually my name is spelled 'Seumas'. It is Scottish Gaelic for James. (As is the Irish spelling of Seamus of course)

I presume you are Kyle and not Kyrle? ;)

Hi there thanks for the welcome! I won't be able to be in Ballydehob next week, although that sounds great. I'm in north Cork, bit of a distance from west Cork but will venture that way at some point.

Ah cheers Kyrle thank you. Yea thought the stool was lighter for all the walking. Disaster though as I lost my black 'signature' cap. Had it for years bah!

In the mood of late for sketching as haven't done any paintings for a while. Will have to knuckle down though as the opera festival is fast approaching. Maybe you might get down for a visit during it and we could view the exhibitions and have a pint or two of course. Festival runs from Oct.19th. to Nov.4th.inclusive.

Thanks Kyrle. I operate out of Canada for the most part but I maintain a studio in Cavan. Looking for plein air paint outs in the area, particularly during the winter months. Looks like this is the proper site. Plein Eire boyne valley looks interesting.

At 22:57 on September 18, 2018, Kevin Lewis said…

Wow Kyrle I never knew it was called Sorrento, what a coincidence. Trust you to use your tea to add colour to your painting ha ha. Glad you liked the other portraits must try another one or two soon.

At 19:04 on July 23, 2018, Kevin Lewis said…

No worries Kyrle, I'm sure we will meet up on one of the days at some point.
