Glendalough Watercolour

I just finished the Glendalough Watercolour. My friend Lorraine asked for a picture for some friends to remind them of their first date. I thought it was glendalough, but after painting it, she was convinced that their first “special moment” was in the Mourne mountains, in county Down, on a hiking weekend. So I will have to consider some scene from the Mournes for them instead. But I like the Glendalough picture myself, as it is a place I really love, and no matter how many times I visit there, I can still think of the monks living up there a thousand years ago in such a beautiful and inspiring place. I sort of envy them. So I am glad to still have the Glendalough picture in my house…for the moment. I really like the reflections in the water, and the transparency of the water showing the gravel beneath the water in the foreground. I also experimented with a different technique for clouds using watercolour, and I think it worked well.
