"Towards Kenbane"

"Towards Kenbane"
Spectacular Irish coastline on a stormy day

Sunday, 29 May 2011


Over the past week we have had very stormy weather, one day in particular the wind speed was in excess of 70 mph and the waves were SPECTACULAR!  I grabbed the camera and we headed for Ballintoy.  The only other people there were, of course, other mad folk with cameras just like us.

I have never seen such waves at Ballintoy - what a wonderful opportunity to get some new painting reference material.  The wind and driving rain did make photography really difficult [one man actually got blown off his feet!] but I managed to take over 300 pics - now all I have to do is find some time to sit and sort them out.

I can hardly wait to get started on some new paintings.  This time I've decided to take photos of each work in progress and post them here along with a write up of my painting process.

Keep watching!
