ARTIST LIVING & WORKING IN SOUTH KERRY ON THE ATLANTIC WAY

At a certain time of life, when the children are reared, the graduations have been celebrated, the nest has been vacated (temporarily it seems) and the daily comings and goings of single parenting life subside , there remains a time, (if we survive)to be face to face with our paintbrush again….

In this time we can draw on all the images and memories of a life lived. We can access the store room of vital moments still vibrant in our visual consciousness.

BALCÓN DE EUROPA, NERJA, MALAGA SPAIN

(see CITYSCAPES on the menu for more details of Balcón de Europa)

This was my invite for my exhibition in 2019, in Cork. It shows three fundamental stages in the oil painting process.

Teaching has always been a part of my Art Life. I have found that to teach the fundamentals of oil painting ( or Acrylic )one first needs to scrutinise the Masters. I study brushwork, composition, colour palette, themes , lighting, poses and presentations in order to know the work. It is only when I know the work so well that I can deconstruct these elements and reconstruct my own ¨recompositions¨
