I am lucky enough to have Mt. Leinster, almost in my back garden. This is one of the many views, of an area called the "Nine stones", at the foot of the mountain. There are various stories as to why it's called the nine stones, none of which I am sure are true. I have been up to the area and beyond many times over the years, so I have observed the light, the seasons, and the weather. This watercolour 7x10.75 ins, is one such occasion, just after sunset. I laid in the sky first in wet washes and let it dry. I added the landscape then, wet in wet, with darker warmer colour as I moved to the foreground.
