On Achill

On Achill - oil/panel - 7"x5" - sold

Since my arrival in Mayo I have been taking regular trips to paint on Achill Island. As many of you know the Ulster born Artist Paul Henry spent many years on Achill painting the landscape and people of the island as did the faboulas American Artist Robert Henri.

The sketch above is a quick piece I composed on the island last week standing across from the majestic 'Minaun Cliffs'. You can view the process for this sketch below.

Dying to post the rest of my more recent sketches in oil for you to see so that I can then get to show you the large studio pieces that I have completed.
