Sketchbook page: Spring Mountain landscape
This was an attempt at depicting a specifically spring like mountain scene when the mountain flanks are putting on this intense fresh vivid green.
Sketchbook page: Summer Meadow
This sketchbook painting (in gouache) is a response to the spotty, speckled aspect of a Northern Hemisphere summer.
Sketchbook page: Details from an Autumn Garden
This sketch, in artist grade pigment ink pens, is a loose sketch of details I noted in the sparse, semi-wilting beds of Dublin's Botanic gardens.
Sketchbook page: Spring Seascape
This seascape sketch (using artist grade brush pens) expressed a late spring yearning for days spent beside the sea but adhered to an early spring "cool" colour palette.
Sketchbook page: A Blue House
This sketchbook painting (in Acryla Gouache) is inspired, no doubt, by my current preoccupation with houses (as I am in the process of moving house). A sketchbook is a also a diary in a sense and often, in overt and covert ways, by quotidian life intrudes onto its pages.
Sketchbook page: Botanical Garden Hedge-lined Beds
In this pigment brush pen sketch I am responding to the Botanic gardens in autumn when many of the elaborate former flower beds are reduced to their basic architecture by the ravages of the season.
