This is everything I love about nature and everything I love about watercolour painting all in one.
I imagine walking in this scene, brooding storm clouds, sunlight glinting off the waves, the exhilaration of being out in the wild weather. In watercolour, I love how you can create light within a painting, I love the earthy colours and how they fuse with each other on the rough textured paper. I think the two combine here to produce one of my personal favourite paintings.
The scene is taken from photos I took when travelling in Ireland, which has been one of my biggest resources for inspiration in recent years. The scenery is truly breathtaking, totally unspoilt coastlines with a background of mountains. So very beautiful.
