‘Sea Surf’ Sketch for painting.

Sea Surf Sketch for painting was done this week from Dillon Park, Dalkey. The views are naturally stunning. Dalkey Island could be clearly seen from my vantage point. I was sitting on an old bench drawing in the freezing cold conditions trying to achieve the best composition and visual aspect for a watercolour painting.

Dalkey Island is a well know spot to most Dublin folk, and in general, most Irish people. The green’s in any painting is a challenge, be it grass or shrubbery. This took me a while to get it right through trial and error mixing subtle yellows and blues. However, I was eventually happy enough with the result. The flat rock (bottom right) brings you through the painting and gradually up to the Island.
