View Over Healy Pass
Watercolour 560mm x 380mm
This mountain pass, between Cork and Kerry is a part of Ireland I always return to. It's a stunning contrast of rocks, lush green grass and dark, glinting peat-bog and mountain lakes and the dancing light makes the scene ever-changing. Euro 495
The Walled City

A walled Alpine Castle, in the style of renowned South Tyrol artist Heiner Gschwendt, who was a friend of my family and a mentor to me when I was a young art student.
West Cork Pheasant

Several handsome male pheasants squabble for territory around the farmlands where we live and, every spring, the more soberly coloured hens and chicks come and feed in the next door fields.
Ross Castle, Killarney
350mm x 260 mm
Watercolour on Paper
This famous Co Kerry Castle was perfectly reflected in the lake one day, giving it a sense of stillness out of time.
Nude Lady, Seated
A4 Sized Watercolour on Paper
Using light strokes and colours,
I have tried to give this nude study a fresh and feminine air.
Naked Blonde Woman
150mm x 250 watercolour, mounted on A4
A sensual but delicately drawn nude, softly painted with pinks and flesh-tones.
Butterfly on Flower
A3 sized watercolour on paper
An orange-tip butterfly, combining delicacy with such strong colour was a tempting challenge for painting.
I hope the finished work does it justice.
Still Life - After Chardin

A still-life grouping inspired by Chardin. This is a free-colour interpretation of one of Chardin's mastepieces, painted very quickly on wet paper.

A peach coloured unfurling rose.
Simple but always beautiful.
Lake Eychauda- Alps
Watercolour on Paper 56 x 38 cm
This is a place I have visited on the Swiss/Italian border. This shows the scene in the very early morning, when all is quiet and isolated. I have tried to capture the almost supernatural stillness that can be found in mountain lakes. Euro 495
The Noon Peak
Watercolour - Mounted 59x49 cm
One of the vast and towering rock-peaks to be found in the Dolomites. This is the kind of landscape that I have painted all my life and it still never fails to inspire me.
Dolphins Off West Cork
Watercolour Painting. Image measures 25 cm x 15, On A3 Sheet
Dolphins often play alongside boats off the West Cork coast. I've tried to capture the fluidity of their movements.
