14.25″ x 16″ oil and wax on panel, requires framing.

The palette is quiet and understated, reflecting the silent movement of clouds onto land in the west of Ireland.

The soft light from the sky, when the sun has dropped below the horizon, fills the atmosphere with a silver glow.

The clouds move gradually across sea and land like floating sculptures on the horizon. They are silhouetted against the sky in muted blue grey and violet.

The sea surf adds light and suggests a rhythm to echo the passage of clouds.

I’d love to read your comment.
