This painting depicts an Irish stag in Wicklow. I actually saw a lot of these guys at the weekend in the Phoenix park, including the younger ones. We’re lucky to have a large herd of deer roaming freely in the park here in Dublin. I hope to go back with my camera soon, but for now I resoted to an old photo I had taken in Glendalough, Wicklow to inspire this painting. Enjoying getting back into the greens of spring.
