"Ballyvester Beach, Northern Ireland" $125
11 x 14 watercolor on Arches paper
It was a cloudy day off and on, but we braved the weather and painted on the beach. The stone on the left is a memorial to someone, maybe a seaman. The beach has lots of rocks and sea weed as well as wildflowers and plants.
The photos below are of our painting group. We were all freezing, as you can tell, as we watched Grahame Booth demonstrate a painting technique. Bob is on the left and Kelli is on the top row, 2nd one in the white hat. Mark is in front by my empty chair. He is working away!
We went to a bag piper's international contest which was very interesting, but unfortunately finally got rained out. Or at least, we got rained out! The little cottage was discovered by Kelli and me as we walked down a country lane near out rental cottage. I love the thatched roof and the bicycle adds a nice touch. I will probably paint from this photo later. Kelli is standing in front of the manor house that the owner of our rental cottage lives in---just gorgeous. The vines will soon be bright scarlet, as Fall comes. They are starting to turn color now. Ireland is so pretty.
