A soft and calming image from the seaside. It makes me want to be there now.
This is an impressionistic image of beautiful Rossnowlagh beach in County Donegal. It is one of Ireland's main surfing beaches. With its soft golden sand and exceptional views it is no surprise that it attracts walkers, swimmers and sailors as well as surfers. One thing I can guarantee, whatever your reason for visiting, this is a beach that will raise your spirit and bring solace to your soul.
St Johns Point
This is a digital painting of St Johns Point and the tall tower of its lighthouse clothed in distinctive black and yellow colours. It is situated at Killough and overlooks Dundrum Bay. The lighthouse, which dates back to 1839, was designed by George Halpin Senior. It was originally painted white with three black bands added in 1902 and the yellow in 1954. It is the tallest onshore lighthouse on the Irish coast. The light was first seen in 1844 and was automated in 1981. The sea around the lighthouse can be calm and serene or wild and rugged but the light shines brightly to warn approaching vessels of the dangerous rocks. This art piece can provide a memento of your visit to the area.
This image was captured on an early June morning as the mist hung over the Atlantic ocean creating a mysterious ethereal feel around Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. The bridge which lies close to Ballintoy in County Antrim was originally constructed by salmon fisherman in 1755. The last fisherman left in 2002 and the bridge is now a thriving tourist attraction. If you are brave enough to walk across you will be rewarded with wonderful views and the opportunity to spot lots of wildlife.
This is the iconic ruin of Dunluce Castle which sits precariously on a rocky headland overlooking the north Atlantic . The castle, in its spectacular setting, is shrouded in myths and legends. With its long and tumultuous history it is deserving of a visit to be fully appreciated.
A moment of quiet contemplation. You can’t help but feel relaxed when looking at this image. Let’s just take a moment to chill.
A fantasy creation of an imagined land that allows us to escape for a time from the stresses of everyday life. Within this piece the swan symbolises balance, the water lilies peace and rebirth and the dragonflies happiness, new beginnings and the importance of living in the moment.
This is an impressionistic portrayal of a beach scene from Newcastle in County Down, Northern Ireland. This is where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea as described in the famous song from Percy French. The day this image was captured the light had a quality and colour that created a calm evocative scene with sea and sky merging into the distant mist. This is the type of image that quickens my heartbeat and can move me to tears, it is so beautiful.
I have a love of impressionistic photography and art. This piece was created from a photograph I captured on Newcastle beach, County Down. It depicts my impression of the colours and emotions I experienced on that particular day. Every time I look at this image I feel the pull of the sea.
Boats On Corbet Lough
Corbet Lough can be found close to the town of Banbridge in County Down. It is a very popular location for fishermen and walkers. The images used in this digital painting were captured on a misty summer morning around 5am, before any of the usual visitors had arrived. It is a very peaceful and serene place at that time of day, which is what I hope I have depicted in this image.
This piece was created from images of bare trees over which I digitally painted the leaves and blended in the figures and background elements to portray a park within an urban environment. It weaves an impression of the colours and mood of a crisp autumn day in a city.
Overlooking the Silent Valley
The beautiful Silent Valley Reservoir lies within the shelter of the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland. It was built between 1923 and 1933 by a workforce of around two thousand men, a number of whom died during its construction.. You can learn the details of this great feat of engineering during a visit to the area. It provides a necessary and important service but it is also a place of serenity and beauty which you can’t help but be effected by when you visit. So I urge you to do so and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and the majesty of the Mournes as they envelope you. If you are able then take a walk up into the hills and view the striking colours of the heather and surrounding foliage. If you can’t manage the hike then savour this image captured during a walk in the area and then painted in my digital workspace. In fact treat yourself and take it home to enjoy on a daily basis.
