I posted an early version of this painting a couple of weeks ago and promised to post when finished, so here it is. This is a view from the road through the Joyce mountains in Connemara.
Just finished this painting of my daughter Charlotte, pretty happy with it, lot of catching up to do! Using Acrylics after so many years of oils is wierd but not in a bad way.

Did a painting of Charlotte the other day which I'll post when finished, but currently working on this landscape based on shots taken in the West last September. As you can see its a work in progress, I'll post when its finished.
