Light on Water III, ©John O’Grady, 2014
Oil on Panel, 10″x 8″


One of the things that make Ireland so beautiful is how the successive weather fronts move in fast. The clouds skittering across the sky allow a play of light on water and land. It’s nature’s free spectacle.

I wanted to achieve that feeling of movement above and below the horizon line by placing lights next to darks while retaining the feeling of distance that make us reflect when looking out to sea.

I’d love to hear what you think.
