Landscape format. Ink and various water media painting of Dublin's Gate Theatre as viewed diagonally from the front portico entrance with four columns above it - which is on the right, with a simple narrow modern rectangular block attached further to the right. On the left is directly across the road and it has a small fountain and tree outside the curved wall with many arches. Colours are yellows and rusty oranges and green-blues, all added in spots to highlight shadows and details rather than be literal colours of the building which also has its stone work outlined and some grey colouring. Railings and lamp posts are black.

If you’d like to buy this painting then shout at me publicly and/or privately to make arrangements – which will be by bank transfer or cash. As ever I’m grateful for you sharing this with people who might like, let’s call it a village, or rural Dublin, or whopping wonderful trees.  But you don’t have to.

I was born here. Kind of. Not on stage, you understand, but where exactly the Rotunda, the Ambassador, and the Gate all start and finish, well, I don’t have the dates to hand as when they all started splitting into different entities.

But anyway, The Gate. I love this view of it on Cavendish Row. Because of the shapes. Look at it. There’s arches, and curves, and columns and a portico, and a fountain, and a big roundy bit, as well as a modern squarish, but sympathetic, add-on. There’s even places to lock your bikes – though I left them out. On the corner opposite there’s a little cafe with seats outside that give you a perfect view of it for sketching. And for drinking tea, as it happens. Word of warning though, if a bus comes down and blocks your view, this isn’t Lusk – it’s unlikely to reverse out of your sight line.

Tell Lily’s Cafe I sent you.

The way the sale works is that whoever messages me first, publicly by comment (typically the quickest way), or privately by whatever means, well I tell them they’re first, then mark the painting as sold – if necessary tell other people that alas they were not first – and I make arrangements privately with you for payment, delivery, that sort of thing. And this is the time where I ask you to consider telling people about this painting – especially if it’s unsold or just because you think people would like to look at it – and I’m grateful when you do.
