Glendalough – Oil Painting


If you visit Ireland, as a tourist, one location you will definitely be brought to is Glendalough. An ancient monastic site, the sense of  peace is wonderful, especially in ‘off season’. Its not too far from where I live so I am a regular visitor there.

This is a relatively small painting, 12″x10″, and painted in a single session. The colours are Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre and French Ultramarine. Others are Chrome Green Deep, Chrome Green Light and Raw Umber. Also, black and white. I used very little medium only a little Liquin at the final stages to help with the details as I am sticking with my policy of using large brushes only.

The painting process was videoed for the next post which will be available soon as the painting time was just over one hour.
