Blackstairs mountain towards the White mountain, Ireland.
A second acrylic study on paper. This view was a preparation for a painting in oil. It's an area on top of one of the Blackstairs peaks, near an ancient stone called the Rathgeran stone. A couple of years ago, I trekked up,the mountains to search for views and landscapes. It was tough, but it was one of those challenges that I had set myself to do. It was exhausting, but wonderful. This is a view, 10x14 ins, looking south, with New Ross and Tramore and Waterford visible 30 and 40 miles away. The sun just catching some peaks and adding some light to the landscape.
