"An Irish Winter" 11" x 14" pastel


This last painting from my studio is another from my trip to Ireland last February (Hard to believe it's been a year already)! We rented a car and drove to Dungarven, on the way we went through the beautiful area of An Rin. It's a quiet coastal community in the south east of Ireland where most of the people still speak the old Gaelic. I was amazed how green and fairly lush everything was in the middle of February, and then I heard that Southern Ireland even has palm trees!

  1. Looks wet and misty Jude.....just like Ireland lolyou've captured it spot on. Like Scotland the reason it's green all year round is cos we get so much rain. Amazingly I've never been to Ireland but I know it's very beautiful and some days if your really lucky we can see we can get a small glimpse of it....bit like faeries lol

  2. Thanks Elizabeth....Oddly enough, It only rained one out of the seven days we were there. It sprinkled here and there and I loved the misty-ness of it :) But I came prepared for downpours and was almost disapointed,lol
