1813 At Rest

12" x 9" oil on panel, framed, Available

First of my paintings for the Dungarven Group Summer Show at the Dungarvan Arts Centre.
My hubby and I took a trip down to Waterford and the Dungarvan area to get some ref pics of the area. Dungarvan is on the south coast of Ireland on an estuary, and of course very picturesque, we chose a perfect sunny day and  I got lots of great photos. I will probably paint around 8 paintings for inclusion.

1815 Working Boy

10" x 12" /25.4 x 30.5cm oil on panel, framed, available

Starting to paint a few horses for the upcoming horse show in Dublin. This lovely equine example lives at a farm near to where we lived in Mountmellick.
I forgot to photograph him after I had finished painting and he got framed, taking a pic when a painting is framed is not ideal.

1811 No Coffee

50 x 40cm oil on canvas available when framed

A simple set up so I thought that it would be a relatively easy one to paint, but of course each painting has it's own difficulties, like getting lost in the folds of the material, finding the right mixes for the shadow colours.and composition etc.

1809 Painted by Nature

8" x 10" / 20 x 25cm oil on canvas board, available

My hubby bough at the local market, along with some duck eggs, these beautiful quail's eggs. I had never seen any in real life before and they really looked as if somebody had painted each egg. Because they are so small it was difficult to find items that didn't dwarf them in my set up.

1808 Evening Light

10 1/2" x 8 1/2" oil on canvas to be framed

Out for an evening stroll we passed by a small paddock with ponies and one donkey, I had been wanting to paint a donkey for a while, so when he came up to the wire fence I took the opportunity to take a snap of his handsome face, I just wished that I had, had an apple to reward him with.
