Irish Deer in Black and White Ink

This painting is one of a new series I’m working on. I’ve been photographing the deer in the Phoenix Park for a while now to get inspiration for paintings. I’ve been able to photograph the deer grazing, picking leaves off trees, lying in long grass, and even having the occasional fight. I’m starting off in black and white, but I have the possibility to paint them in colour as well. Hopefully the good weather continues and I can go out and photograph them further.

This is the photograph I took these deer from- it was lucky to catch such a perfect pose.

Red Southwestern Mountains- Abstract

Red Southwestern Mountain Landscape.

This painting was inspired by looking at mountains with Indian Paintbrush flowers on them, which create the sense of red and yellow brush strokes across the landscape. I have taken a contemporary take on this kind of landscape, and incorporated some vein-like rivers and streams into the landscape. Painted in my favourite medium, watercolor and ink.

Garlic and Rosemary Watercolours

GGarlic and Rosemary are two of my favourite ingredients to cook with. I love their aromas and they are both delicious. Add in some red wine and you’ve got the makings of a wonderful sauce for Chicken, Beef of Lamb. To me the Purple Garlic always tastes the best. And no, I don’t care if it makes me a garlicky smelling date…

Sleepy River, Night Landscape

This is something new for me, using the ideas from some of my monochrome landscapes, but with colour, and on a larger scale. I think I called this one ‘Sleepy River’ because I painted it so late at night!

Here’s a detail:
