I’ve uploaded some new images of Ireland to fineartamerica.com. My profile page is https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/catherine-considine.html. and there are more to come in the coming weeks.
Sketches done on my journey across Mayo from Westport to Achill.
Mostly I used pencil and then there’s some Pan Pastels for colour.
I completed about 10 oil paintings during my travels, and I’m working now on completing the full series in the studio.
Lately I’ve been concentrating on portraits trying to consolidate my ideas & figure out the practical side of things. Using a different medium too for working out the layout and colours. Pan Pastels are great to work loosely with – you apply with a foam tipped little plastic knife.
The Dunlaoire Art Gallery Christmas Exhibition at Brian S Nolan (top floor with lift access) December 2014
We had a great time at the opening, the weather was bleak, but plenty of friends and collectors braved the elements and made it a great night.
The exhibition is open daily until into the new year – it has a great advantage of having a very good café, in plain sight of the gallery – so there I was the morning after, waiting for my collector and great friend to arrive – coffee, scones, and photos of my paintings on the table. Very nice.
Thank you to all in the store who made us so welcome.
