I love a big sky and with this larger size painting, I took on the challenge of capturing an open vista viewed from a high viewpoint to give it distance. The drifting clouds provide a delicate and colourful play of light on the landscape bathed in the evening shadows.
The evening sun gives a burnt orange glow to the bog grasses that completes the overall feeling of warmth running through this work.
My studio is on the fourth floor with views over rooftops and hills in the background. The frequent mistral wind offers a perpetually moving sky so even though this painting is of Ireland, I wonder how much this experience feeds into my present work.
I exhibit internationally and my art is featured in collections worldwide.
As Far as the Eye Can See is ready to hang. The edges, painted with white, are 1.75" deep so framing is not required. All paintings are varnished to add a protective coat against dust.
Only the highest quality archival fine art grade oil paints are used on a surface gessoed and prepared by myself.
All work is packed professionally using protective compressed foam boards 2 cm deep so that your painting arrives safely.
Shipping: the painting is shipped insured and with a tracking number I email you.
I hope you enjoy it.
