The Cottage Window

The Cottage Window - oil/panel - 7"x5" - sold

A left turn off the road towards New Quay and Kinvara and down through three fields and remembering to close the gates after you brings you to my cousins Stella and Dymphna Walsh's beautiful old traditional Irish cottage. The first thing you see on approach through the fields is the chimney rising up from where the cottage is nestled in close to the shoreline.

The cottage has no electricity with just one small window in the front.

I quickly found my subject - The morning light was beaming through the old window lighting the thick plastered ledge and surrounding walls while back lighting an old pot and dropping the interior walls into shadow.
