Allihies in west county cork is one of my favorite locations to visit in Ireland.

The town is located at the far end of the Béara Peninsula, west cork, the landscape scenery here is just stunning. The town itself is about as remote as it gets in this part of the world. There are many coastal walks along with paths that wind through the hills. The town is also well known for its copper mining history with many of the old mines still standing in the hills acting as a backdrop for the town.

There is a museum that you can visit details here : Allihies copper mine visitors center

My painting / sketch here was painted digitally using a combination of PC applications and taken from some sketches and photos I came home with on the return from my last visit.

Last week I revisited Kilcooley Abbey in country Tipperary with the aim of capturing some images to produce some sketches and paintings from.

The Abbey is an amazing location and this quick sketch is made on my tablet using Krita a digital painting application. I like the idea of fast sketches, they are not meant to be anything like finished work but by doing them you feel you know the location your hoping to work with very well, be it for painting/drawing or photography.

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.
