‘Sunset on the Shannon Reimagined’

I worked on this oil painting over a number of months.

It started out as an observation painting I did based on a photograph I took of the sun setting on the Shannon. At the time the natural colours in the sky were so vibrant it was difficult to believe it was real.

Then during lockdown when we were allowed to go beyond 5km for exercise, I did a lot of hiking over the summer months, took many photos of beautiful scenery and houses nestled in hillsides and valleys surrounded by natural beauty.

I eventually returned to this painting and added to it from my imagination, an image of a place and home that could be tucked away in the hills anywhere in Ireland, surrounded by our natural beauty that I saw so often on my hill walking expeditions.

‘Sunset at Castleconnell’

I painted Sunset in Castleconnell from a photograph that a friend had taken, they allowed me to use it. They captured such a beautiful scene, the colouring in the original photograph was so vibrant I wanted to capture this in my painting.

I loved the haystacks in the field, and the post that was dead centre of the painting with the ivy growing on it and the light shining on it, it created such natural perspective that I really enjoyed capturing. A beautiful scene that was naturally framed by nature.

‘Wild Swans at Castle Oaks’

Wild Swans at Castle Oaks I painted in July 2020. I went for a walk by the beautiful stream that runs behind the Castle Oaks Hotel in Castleconnell, when I came across this peaceful beautiful scene of what looked like a little family of swans gliding across the water, they were naturally framed by the nature that surrounded them. I stood for a few moments and watched the scene and took photos. I wanted to capture the stillness and beauty of nature in this oil painting.

‘Sunset in Monaco’

I painted Sunset in Monaco in July 2020. I had been staying with a friend who is living in Cannes and we took a day trip to Monaco. The sunset was breath-taking, afterwards I was so glad I had taken this photo.

Sometimes nature is so beautiful I find it’s difficult to fully absorb it at the time, but when I found this photo on my phone the beauty of the colours in the sky took my breath away again and took me back to the exact moment I had taken it, peaceful, still and vibrant, I really wanted to capture this and the calmness of that exact moment in this painting.

‘Castle View’

I painted Castle View in May 2020. I have always admired Constable’s paintings and here I experimented with similar colours that he used.

I loved experimenting with perspective in this painting and using the distant castle as a focus point. I feel that castles always add a touch of magic to a scene. Growing up I always loved architecture and this was reinforced when I worked as a Bunratty Castle Entertainer in the 12th century castle in Co Clare which fuelled my imagination and still does to this day.
