Capturing the world with Photography, Painting and Drawing

New paintings , Digital art work

KIlkenny Reed beds
Painting from the Irish Bogs.
Digital art work : Nigel Borrington

First paintings for over a year :

Its over a year since I did any painting, I have been working with my photography so much, but as its the start of a new year , I felt a real need to paint again.

This painting is the start of a project I will work on , based on the upland bogs of Kilkenny and Tipperary.

It based on a series of photographic images from these great places.

  2. This one likes it VERY MUCH. Could you elucidate on your methodology, please, Nigel? Are they photographic images over-worked? Or simply paintings based on photographs?
