Howth Sketching session


The final painting, very simple style. It was a dark overcast day when I went back on Tuesday and this was done just before it pissed it down.



A few thumbnail sketches from today. Hope to return to Howth soon to do up a painting based on the sketch of the Martello tower.

James they are fantastic - well done. Really hope you get to work your magic on them and we get to see a painted rendition soon! The transformation of your boats sketch to the finished piece was really fantastic!
