'Sandycove Summer Sun'

'Sandycove Summer Sun'


Sandycove is a stunning cove south of Dun Laoire Co. Dublin. This painting was painted there. Done primarily from a colour sketch and finished off in the studio. The colours are really vivid in the sky and sea. I wanted to just subtly hint at the various pale shades of colour in the buildings. They have rusty like hues in the walls and i didn't want it all to look perfectly white/gray, this would only have them sticking out like 'sore thumbs'. There was a bit of 'wet into wet' technique involved too. (paint loaded onto the brush into a clean wet or moist paper. The result: splayed out colour, runnny and hazy with no definition.
