a rumour of itself

Although this old Irish country house is now just a shadow of it’s former glory, it has a retained a certain elegance and dignity it’s shabbiness. I hope I fare as well!

six stage painting process

I am asked from time to time about how I paint. So I thought I’d answer some of your questions by way of a short video. The video follows the six stages that I work through in painting any painting, in this case the one above.

  • Fascinating process.
    The rose background (one of my favorites as well) works so beautifully with the green-y gray colors and adds so much to the final painting. I especially like leaving some peeking through.
    Thanks for sharing and where did you get that wonderful music?
