"Part of a series of abstract landscape paintings on Fabriano paper created during my residency at Cill Rialaig Artists Retreat, Co. Kerry, Ireland. Inspired by the rural, barren beauty of this remote location perched on the cliffs of Bolus Head overlooking the Atlantic Ocean battered by the fierce winter storms.
In order to capture the ever-changing magical light reflecting off the surrounding land, I used the quick-drying egg tempera, egg glair and incorporated locally sourced natural earth pigments, graphite dust, gum arabic, slate dust (sourced from local Valencia Island slate quarry), peat ash (collected from my peat burning stove), where possible, to reflect the true natural colours of this rugged coastal of the Iveragh Peninsula."
