Burren Hay Bales

Burren Hay Bales - oil/panel - 12"x9" - sold

This piece was created in a field across the road from my cottage close to Ballyvaughan village in Co. Clare around August 2010. In the background of the composition you can see an impression of the Aillwee limestone mountain landscape that is famous for it's beautiful cave system.

The light and colour that morning was radiant so I concentrated my efforts on lush brushstrokes on and around the hay bales to represent and capture this as best I could.
