River Liffey, Dublin
I have been working on some jewellery designs inspired by cities, and in my research I made a few drawings of those cities in ink and watercolor. The piece above is one such finished painting. Dublin is my home city, and this painting shows the River Liffey, as viewed from O’Connell Bridge in the evening. Along the river you can see three bridges including the well-known Ha’penny bridge, which lately people are locking padlocks to as a symbol of love. It all seems very romantic, apart from the fact that apparently it is rusting the bridge, which was old enough to start with!
