Pink & Red Majesty

Pink & Red Majesty - oil on museum board - 12"x9" - sold
Private Collection, Ireland

In the late evening at this time of year the Ailwee mountain behind my studio is cast in this light that turns the limestone an incredible pink. I thought of Corot when I finished this painting. There are three strong defining tones and a great sense of atmosphere. The large tree by the wall really anchors the composition and adds to the sense of majesty.
