This little pond has a never ending fascination for our two cats as they stare endlessly into its’ depths for the noisy frogs that live in this shady environment. Sold.
This watercolour features a little cove in Ballycotton, a well known an very picturesque fishing village in West Cork. I added in the cat for a light touch. This artwork is now in a Private Collection.

Large original signed landscape. Details and price of this large, original and signed artwork are available on request. It is an autumnal view of a nearby town, with its unique church spire and the group of village houses nestling in the surrounding landscape.
One discipline that many artists lack is that of keeping their materials and equipment in good order, easy to find and disposed of when no longer required. The reason I say this is that recently, I was asked to dispose of the contents of a deceased artist and was quite amazed at the amount of totally unusable “stuff” he had accumulated over the years.
Considering this man was a competant watercolourist who worked in a very limited palette and on only one brand and size of watercolour paper, the huge amount of extraneous art brushes, pencils, pens, crayons, charcoal, acrylics and oils plus assorted thinners, etc., plus canvas and board that he had and would never use, was quite extraordinary. So why not like me, make an inventory of what you actually use and want, bin the rubbish and give what you don’t and won’t need to those who can make good use of it?
Even leaves can make a pleasing composition and a likeable artwork. Commissioned artwork. Watercolour on paper, size A4.
The locally made vase was the focal point for this large watercolour, that I filled with berries, ivy leaves and “supported” on a colourful cloth, prior to painting. Artist’s wtercolours and rag watercolour paper were used in this work, which is available.
I drew this very elderly person just a week before he died. It is a nice memory for his loving owner. Charcoal pencil on paper. This artwork is now in a private collection.
