Garden Wall, Kilkea Castle – Time Lapse Painting

Garden Wall, Kilkea Castle

This is the last of a series of paintings which are similar in colour and size. The colours are rather dark with bright skies. Its only when a new painting arrives which is different you notice the previous similarities. The peculiar thing is that regardless of the subject and colours used in the individual paintings they end up with a similar look to them.

Very often artists are concerned about not having a ‘style’, like a signature identifying their work. It can force an artist to pursue a particular course in an attempt to create a ‘style’. I think that all artists pass through several phases in their work and its wise not to think about it too much. Just let it flow.

Here is the video of this painting.

  1. I agree with you about not really needing to actively develop a style. I think an artist should just naturally allow themselves to progress in their work and explore different aspects of their creativity and in the end, a style will emerge because of the learning and gaining of experience.
