Irish Cottage, Ballyvaughan
21 x 28 Framed
Watercolor & Gouache
While on a painting trip to Ireland, I used watercolor to render this thatch roof cottage at low tide in Ballybaughn. The inlet below the wall had layers of water, stones, seaweed and grasses that create horizontal layers of color and texture, my favorite part of this painting. Again, gouache help to give emphasis to the lights.
Quiet Winter Shadows
Framed 32 x 40″
Nothing seems to reflect light and shadow better than snow. While painting this winter scene I played with the glow of sunlight that creates color in the white of the tree trunks and the snow revealing the reds, yellows and blues everywhere.
