Tempera

Series of contemporary abstract paintings created during my residency at Cill Rialaig, Co. Kerry, Ireland. Inspired by the rural, barren beauty of this remote location perched on the cliffs of Bolus Head overlooking the Atlantic Ocean battered by the fierce winter storms.  Incorporating locally natural earth pigments : slate dust, peat ash, where possible to capture the true colours of this rugged coastal landscape with its ever changing magical light reflecting on the Iveragh Peninsula.
