Painting of Donegal House

Echo Of Small Things

Why do the details matter? I have always had a fascination for the ordinary details that are easily overlooked. I want to convey what a scene looked like at that moment. Here I explain the inspiration behind my recent painting, “Near Dunmore Strand”.

Painting of Donegal landscape beach,

Dunmore Strand, Donegal

Blog about my painting of a Donegal beach. As soon as I saw this place I knew I wanted to paint it. The granite rocks, or rather boulders, were scattered along the beach and in the sea. They were a beautiful pinkish colour close up.

Donegal Blues

Paints represent a sort of non-verbal language for me. I actually find it hard to put into words how I feel about paints. I have a “feeling” in my stomach and I want to wave my hands about a bit to express those feelings. I don’t know if other artists are like this. I see colours in life and think of the paints I might use to represent them on the canvas. This blog is about a particular shade of blue.
