The beach at Tramore, Co. Waterford. 9x12 ins 2010. I changed the composition here, in that the figures were not originally in the scene, but from another painting I had in mind. The beach was virtually deserted, so to give some perspective and make the distance recede, I added the figures. It was May 2010, so not quite warm enough for beach lovers and yet warm enough for people such as this family, mother and grandmother to take a walk. The lines are where paint was lifted out with a little water and a clean brush, these helped with perspective and creating recession.
