Painting River Ireland

After the Rain ©John O’Grady, 2013
Acrylic on Panel 8″x 8″


When it rains in Ireland, which it can do from time to time, the
water runs off the hills and across the bogland in a torrent.

The purple bog heather in full bloom carpets the landscape.

This is another painting where the bleeds and runs of the acrylic paint
gave me the freedom to respond in a freer way.

I will be doing a post with some images of a work in progress in the near future
to more fully explain this way of working.

I’d love to hear your comments on this piece.
