Misty Morning near Béal an Átha

Misty Morning near Béal an Átha - oil/panel - 12"x9" - sold

On the road that leads towards the north west coast of County Mayo is a wildly beautiful landscape of blanket bog, heather, moss and peat exists. The place has an incredible expansive lost and faraway feeling.

I used the creation of this piece above to experiment with creating a strong feeling of atmospheric distance as well as an opportunity to experiment with varying edges.

Thinking again this morning of Robert Henri I found this quote - 'A mountain seen in the haze of distance must nevertheless look a solid heavy mountain'.
