This painting is a bit more specific in terms of place and didn’t arise from imagination or through the process of painting.
It was a commission I finished last week. So I used photo references to capture the topography of the land.
The sea and sky were painted from memory. The ever shifting light falling upon the water over Killiney bay once seen is never forgotten.
The client was unable to buy it so I thought it would be interesting to show you the kind of commission work I can create.
This view is from Killiney Hill in South County Dublin, looking towards Dalkey Island.
I’d love to hear what you think.
