Trá Bán, Sherkin Island, Pastel © wildsherkin 2013
This is so beautiful! I paint in watercolors and acrylics, but have never been able to get the hang of pastels! And I love the ocean!!! Do you live near the ocean?
Thank you! Yes, we have a holiday home on Sherkin Island, off the south west coast of Ireland. 🙂
You’re welcome. Wow! Ireland is one country I’ve always wished I could visit. My daughter loves Nials? from One Direction, because she loves his accent. 🙂 She and her friend want to go there someday, too…..
Niall is lovely but then again, they all are! (According to my teenage daughters, I hasten to add!). What part of the world are you in?
California in the U.S.
OH! Double wow!!
this is beautiful, Frances
Thank you Frances.
This is beautiful Patsy!
Thank you, Tim 🙂
What a great painting Ws, it just make me want to sit down all afternoon and look at that view 🙂
Thanks Nigel 🙂
Lovely drawing! Those clouds are wonderful, and the sea such a rich colour.
Thanks Anna, I think what is lovely about using soft pastels is that I can use my fingers to manipulate and shape form and not rely on drawing skills!
Wow patsy this is truly gorgeous
Thanks Nuala 🙂
This is utterly gorgeous P !
Why you have been so reticent to show your art work before I’ll never know .
Those clouds .. the sea shore line and sand drills .. the colours .. aww you are so clever 🙂
I hope you do more of these …I really do x
Thank you Poppy, I really like pastel as a medium but it’s taken a while to produce something I’m happy to show! I’m definitely hooked though so hopefully, my pictures will improve with time 🙂
Yea thanks…He has been in Islanders Rest before 🙂
Love Sherkin, My bro wanted to buy there, any avail able homesteads there?
Hi Cath, there is a very (very) large, unfinished house for sale. I think it is on for only 150K and there’s a lovely, old two story house with sea views – very dilapidated and over-priced!
Sheet…he probably dont have that much left,,,,,any cheep Band B there for hols in August? His partner has MS and wants to bring her to Sherkin again, with me !
I posted Sherkin in Facebook…!
Thanks Cath. Re. B&B’s, I think the only one is the Islander’s Rest. I think it’s quite reasonable. 🙂
Very, very beautiful. Are you working on location or in the studio?
Thanks Deb. I worked on it at home and at my evening class (from a photo I had taken).
I like this WildSherkin. Captivating of the mood and love the lines on the sand. MM
Thanks MM, congrats on your blog. I’m really enjoying it. P
Thanks, if you have any suggestions would appreciate it, including places to go etc. Time is my big problem right now and I’m not even working. I guess in doing the blog I am noticing things alot more which can’t be bad. Enjoy the weekend. MM
That’s what I find is the best thing about blogging – a heightened awareness of what’s around me. Wish I had more time too ….life keeps getting in the way of quality blogging time! 🙂
this is beautiful, i love it
Thank you! I softened the clouds since taking this picture so I think it’s a bit better now. 🙂
