This was a photo from last week at the lovely Sandycove inlet – Near Dun Laoghaire Harbour. The noticeable difference was the biting wind and cold air sketching. It was really hard to paint a watercolour sketch in this weather…other artists would disagree, maybe they would be correct!
The particular area is behind the forty-foot bathing area and you walk down the hill a little, turn left at the end, and you’re looking at the scene in the image. Truly stunning. Many artists over the years have painted this scene, and you can see why. Look out in my ‘Shop’ page to see this location setting for the studio painting over coming weeks based on THIS sketch.
