Achill Cottage Sketch

Achill Cottage Sketch - oil/panel - 7"x5"

A quick 15minute sketch in oil to capture the fleeting light and sky over Achill Island.
Simple shapes and singular gestural brush strokes combine here to give the painting its atmosphere. I love the 'lushness' of the brushstroke that describes the light hitting the front of the cottage.
