Cottage Interior with cut Lemons

Cottage Interior with cut Lemons - oil on canvas - 12"x9" - sold

Another piece that I began some time ago but have only come to resolve recently.

In fact its over a year since I sat in near darkness at the corner of my pre-famine cottage/studio at the Cill Rialaig Art project in Co. Kerry.

It was colour against colourlessness and the atmosphere of the interior that I wanted to capture. The beam of light coming through the cottage door and window excited me and could not be ignored as I felt its presence would bring a strong sense of balance to the composition.
