I have had an ambivalent relationship with painting clouds. My approach to painting clouds has been transformed by looking at and painting Irish skies.
The Rosses is a region in the west of County Donegal, Ireland. The name comes from “Ros”, the Irish word for headland. It’s a barren but beautiful landscape, studded with a myriad of lakes and inlets of the sea.
Donegal is at the north-western corner of the Republic of Ireland. Facing out towards everything the Atlantic has to through at it. It is very big, very beautiful and very empty.
