About the ArtworkGlendalough is famed as the breath-taking "valley of the two lakes" in Ireland, and is located in the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It's world-famous Monastic site with Round Tower, surrounded by scenic lakes and valleys, walks and trails, attracts locals and visitors alike at all times of the year.
"I have been painting a number of landscapes in recent times and am generally on the lookout for landscape images that trigger my imagination. This Glendalough image, that struck a chord, was recently posted by Kieran Freeney on Instagram (Kieran is a collector of my work). I printed it off and used it as a basis for this painting. Painting was quickly sketched out in pencil, then blocked out in acryic using a brush. The final application of thicker paint was applied with a palette knife and piece of stick. Paint was applied liberally to add a third dimension to, what could otherwise be viewed, as a “traditional” work".
