Beautiful waterlilies love the warm moist ponds that are scattered though Ireland. This oil painting of waterlilies on the pond has deep blue ultramarines with soft pink petals of the growing waterlilies. I paint outdoors so I can capture the light and magic of Ireland’s special locations.
I love the medium of oil, it is the smell, the fluidity the layering that gives the richness to the painting. Each layer fuses and gives the color vibrancy that is unique among the oil painting medium. It is equally fantastic as a transparent, opaque and translucent medium that allows me lots of opportunities to paint the country we live in.
