A Burren Wall

A Burren Wall - oil/panel - 5"x5" - sold

Back to my daily 'sketches in oil' now. As much as I love working in the studio, being outdoors presents an altogether more intensely real experience. The wind, fleeting light, sounds and smells create in me a directness in how I work to transcribe that experience of nature in paint.

The last couple of weeks have given me a chance to contemplate my next steps and I now have some pretty strong ideas about how I might approach my next bodies of work when I arrive in the West of Ireland. Will fill you in in more detail soon.

This piece above and the one to follow have found their way into a very important private collection in Pasadena, CA. Best wishes to all the Bacon Family.
