New Paintings: Southstack Landscapes

The following two paintings were completed in fairly quick succession, again in a grisaille style. The first was painted from a very loose sketch carried out in a very fine drizzle, which soaked my sketchbook and obscured my view. The ‘fingers’ of rock reminded me of a giant’s hand as he was attempting to claw his way onto dry land and made me think back to tales of Irish giants read about as a child.

The second picture is a first attempt at capturing the vertigo-inducing views of the cliffs near Ellis Tower.
