George & Senan’s Excellent Adventure

Commission. 80x60cm oil on canvas. Senan and his best friend George the dog having an adventure over Bray in a biplane. Quite difficult to balance 3 different light sources etc and work from photos but pretty happy with the overall result. Always an honour to be asked to paint a loved one.

Tree on a Slope of Bray Head_plein air

‘Tree on a Slope of Bray Head’. 30x30cm plein air oil on board.Whilst out walking on Bray Head I spied a nice tree. What attracted me towards it was the pose it struck on the diagonal slope and the thick base. Couple of afternoons well spent in the sun…….as the world burns.
