‘Sunset at Sandycove’

I enjoyed working on this watercolour. My main challenge: getting the setting sun correct, not just that, but, making sure it was vivid and had the feeling and warmth and strength in the sun. I hope I’ve achieved this somewhat. The figures silhouetted gives some added interest and balance. A warm uniformed harmony of browns, yellows, blues and cadmium orange make up this limited palette.

Sandycove is such a beautiful little corner of south county Dublin. Nestled between Dun Laoghaire and Dalkey Village. Know mostly for it’s swimming enthusiasts – The 40 Foot as it’s affectionately more know as by locals is located behind this cove.
