Mist lifting in the evening sun. Darkness approaching.
Awakening out of winter, I finished this gull painting last week, it’s been on my mind and I’ve been sketching the idea since being on Achill last year. In the shallows, the seaweed turns over with the tide, mixing with the foam – rich pickings for the gull.
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.
Purchase canvas prints, framed prints, and more featuring my art
I’ve uploaded paintings of Mayo 2017 to my gallery of Irish art on fineartamerica.com. There’s quite an array of products they print onto now.
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.
I’ve hung these paintings for sale in Sheila’s shop in Cabinteely, Co. Dublin along side her wonderful fashion designs.
Each painting comes ready gift-boxed.
See Google map below for details.
I’ve been putting together some pictures of Ireland, going through photos in Lightroom. Because I’m always shooting a photo with a view to capturing a reference for a painting, they don’t often work as a finished photo, but some do & I don’t pay enough attention to them.
Intense rain and wind is difficult to work with, rain seems to come from everywhere, but with the camera under a white umbrella, I managed to get this shot.
I took this photo from the passenger seat in a moving car heading south on the M11 en route to Brittas Bay.
I haven’t managed a successful painting of the Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare yet. I was happy with the colours & forms in my last picture, but the composition lacks balance. I have a feeling that if I can experience a day of turbulent sky there, I’m sure I can make it work, especially in the height of summer when the cliffs will be most pale. I like the cloud in my oil sketch though – it was an accident when the painting was being transported, but what a nice idea.
My first time exhibiting in my hometown of Dublin, Ireland – please come along if you can! Looking forward to seeing friends and meeting the other artists.
