The Falls, Powerscourt

The Falls, Powerscourt, Co. Wicklow - oil/panel - 7"x5" - sold

A recent quick sketch in oils at the powerscourt waterfall proved inspiring.
Firstly I walked over to the fall with my easel - right under it. The feeling of power it was generating was immense.

Then I fell back to a distance to capture it cutting down through the Wicklow landscape on this misty overcast day - its almost white veins standing out in sharp contrast to the earthy backdrop of rock and foliage.
