Landscape format. On a sunny blue sky day a blue rowing boat, paint peeling, sits on a small mound of lime coloured grass. A few metres past it a stream, or narrow inlet, runs across the painting. The far half of the water is full of floating orange seaweed with some dark rocks protruding. Along its side is a lone of rocks. black and brown where they meet the seaweed and grey on top. Above the bank is a large area of gorse, a dense dark green bush with small yellow blossoms. The gorse reaches half way across from the left edge. Back a few more metres in the centre of the painting is a warm grey outbuilding with a blue corrugated roof and two small dark windows. Rocky hills stretch behind it with a house behind a small orange hill on the left, and a larger house further back on the right also nestled behind a mound. Both houses have dark trees behind them. Larger rocky hills are behind them, and at the back across the painting is a line of pale blue rocky mountains.

Connemara Boat (Galway)

Painting: “Connemara Boat” (County Galway)  

Ì loved this scene when I came upon it while cycling in Connemara. It was like all the elements of Conamara coming together to make a perfect composition. Oh, I’m going to paint you, I said into the sunny air. I know, replied my bike. But it took me a while – because, well, it was involved.

The original painting is sold but you can buy prints of my Connemara Boat painting. (You can choose from various formats and styles like on canvas or metal as well as the classic Art Print, and sizes available range from small up to extra-large.
