'Teddy's Ice Cream on the Pier'
I was really pleased with this watercolour. This scene i've done before, and it always gives me a pep in my step. I think it's the colours and vibrancy of the area. It's a 'happy' painting. The bouy for instance..(bottom right) was a key feature; the dark blue stands out against the lighter contrasting surrounds. The figures is another feature you can't but notice; I'm still a 'graduate' with figure studies - so much more to learn about movement and bodily gestures, which really do make a difference. Dun Laoghaire has so much great scenes to paint, this is one of them: East Pier.
