Windblown Tree, Ballyvaughan Pier

Windblown Tree, Ballyvaughan Pier - oil on linen - 12"x9"

This is the second time I have returned to this place to paint.
There exists a palpable energy to these trees that cling onto the wall of the pier.
The light here can be amazing, and quite dazzling at times, as the differing weather blows in from the Atlantic.

Braving the changing light and weather is just a couple of the many challenges that direct outdoor painting presents. I enjoy embracing those challenges.

Special thanks to Cliff and Ann from Washinton D.C for sending me on this photo of me a work.
