Sandycove in summer with family
This is a 'happy family' painting. The sun is out. It's the start of summer after the long and cold winter. I've exaggerated the colour tones to a degree to draw the viewer in. The water for instance; it's mediterranean in appearance, plus the trees are very 'green'. This is the beauty with painting, you can be your own editor. To be fair: this little gem of a place in Sandycove, Co. Dublin is truly stunning. What pulled me into paint this watercolour was the row of people sitting and chatting on the old stone wall to the right, all aligned to catch the most of the sun.
