Howth Challenge - Bailey Lighthouse

Well, I suppose someone has to post first so it may as well be me.  This is the subject I chose for Sean's Howth Challenge, the Bailey Lighthouse on Howth Head. My usual Saunders Waterford rough 11ins.x7.5ins.

Really enjoyed doing it particularly as I have never been there. It was nice to try something new. Thank you for the challenge Sean, maybe we'll do more before the end of this dreadful time. Won't make Noel's Zoom meeting tomorrow, but best regards to you all and keep those…

Portrait of daughter in oil.

I painted this during the Covid 19 Lockdown. I am writing this a s a blog because I didn't think it was apt to go in the Open Air Gallery. She posed for 4 x 20mins with 10min breakers in-between. It took me 10 - 12 hours to complete.

She liked it and asked me to do a matching one of her fiancee. I'll post when completed.…

Wexford Panorama Commission

Watercolour on SW rough 200lb. 30x11ins. Was commissioned earlier this year to do this for a local businessman. It's one of the biggest paintings I've ever tackled, certainly one of the widest.  It took me two days and have to say I was very pleased with the result, and extra delighted when the recipient was happy too.…

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

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…

Visit to Sorolla exhibition National Gallery

A wonderful exhibition, worth a few return visits. I didnt get a group photograph but I think Kyrle did - you can add it on here if you like Kyrle. A few of us tried sketching in Merrion Sq afterwards and Kevin went to great extremes to find a few roofs to paint in the city centre…
