Twilight Glendalough.

Oil on Panel, 12″x 12″


As the last rays of the day set the sky on fire over the Upper Lake, perhaps I am feeling a gentle shift in the seasons as this piece has an autumnal or even wintery atmosphere as the days begin to close in.

I think the painting reflects this. It has a darker, brooding feel when compared with the previous Glendalough painting.

Today, I chose to paint the clouds a highly saturated rose colour set against a muted aubergine colour of the mountains and water to arrive at a pictorial balance.

I would love to hear what you think.
