Glencolumille, Donegal, Ireland
I've been away for some time as I've been involved in other art projects
This picture is painted using Rembrant soft pastels on Daler Rowney pastel paper. It measures approx. 12 inches by 16 inches.
This picture is painted from a combination of two holiday photographs taken whilst on holiday in Dongegal several years ago although I have used artistic licence as far as the figures and poppies are concerned. I like poppies and I think figures in a landscape can "lift" a painting.
The most difficult think about painting this picture was deciding what part of the photographs to use and what to discard and also where to crop the photographs to get the focal point I was aiming for.
Overall I am happy with the way it has turned out but any suggestions or hints would be most welcome.
