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 was built around the bunch of cherries, adding the deep blues of the plate and the copper browns of the jug for emphasis. Details and price available.

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.
