This painting was inspired by a combination of sketches of the Irish landscape, memories and imagination. It is part of a series of paintings in which I restricted the number of colours used in each one. The painting was built up layer by layer to add texture and then scraped back in parts to reveal the layers underneath.

Artists Statement

I paint colourful, textured landscapes and abstracts in oils and acrylics. My paintings are inspired by the beauty, ruggedness and magical quality of the Irish landscape as well as many other intriguing things I encounter every day.

In my work I like to mix reality with memories and imagination and paint my own interpretation of it. I exaggerate colour, apply layer upon layer of paint, then work back into the surface with various tools as well as pallet knives and brushes to create sensuous works of art with a wonderful tactile quality.
