Landscape format. The bottom half is water, rippling in many shades of blue including some navy ripples in the foreground and some stretches of pale aqua blue in the distance. Sparkle of light are rendered in many many white dots. There are nine small boats moored in the bay, some sail boats (with their sales down) and some very small boats. Only one is in the foreground - a small boat on the left, in shade and backlit light throwing up yellow and turquoise into its little wheelhouse. The rest are in the middle distance, where just past all bar one is a boat ramp on the left, silhouetted as a black triangle with a lit up warm top. It is beside a row of big piles. At the far end of the bay is a sliver of a beach on the left reaching across to an island on the right. The island has its own little beach and clumps of trees on its side before we see on its top tilted towards us a couple of bright green fields. Behind it is a low strip of pale green and lilac land and behind it are large pale blue mountains. Running across the top is a long series of white fluffy clouds with a dark bottom. Blue sky is along the very top.

First I want to say I’m not very happy with this photo – because I missed daylight and took it indoors without the time to set up lighting safely. Basically, I think it looks a lot better than its photo. And I will take a new one.

Anyway, last time I painted Bantry Bay I painted the view into Bantry, with the bay in the foreground and the entrance to the town in the background. But as I said then, and as I say every time I talk about Bantry – well, every single view from all angles is fabulous. I’ve been working on this one for years. But only today – actually today – was I finally happy with it. I hope you are too.

If you’d like to buy this painting just shout that you would before anyone else and I’ll then contact you to make arrangements – payment by bank transfer or cash probably. Meanwhile if it’s still available you could help me by telling people who like west Cork, or all Cork, or, well you get the gist.
