grainnes gaff

"Very nice work ray, really brooding, I know it's Grainne Maoils place but it reminds me of Yeats gaff too. It's excellent, reminds me of those wonderful old Irish train travel posters from the early 20th century. Class colour palette."

Profile Information

Hi, My Name is Ray, I'm originally from Mayo to where I've recently returned after a couple or four years traveling for work.

I'm a digital painter/designer/art director for the international animation industry by profession but am hoping that joining this group will give me the impetus to get up from behind the computer and out into the fields. (and maybe loose this belly in the process!)

Always wanted to be a plein air painter, have been following a multitude of artists online forever so now's my chance! Looking forward to meeting and learning from you all! Happy Painting-Ray.

If anyone is interested in one to one photoshop workshops just let me know, cheers
