Storm at Bolus Head # I

View Fullscreen


Tempera, glair, natural earth pigments, mixed media

Part of a series of contemporary, abstract, landscape paintings created during a winter residency in Ireland. I was inspired by the fierce and wild Atlantic storms, the rugged, barren coastal landscape, and the ever changing magical silver light of the Iveragh Peninsual. Using indigenous natural materials where possible e.g gathering peat ash from the stove, slate dust from a local quarry, ground earth pigments from the rocks etc., mixed with tempera, glair and mixed media, in order to capture the natural colours of the dramatic, winter, coastal landscape in my paintings.
