Pen and Ink drawing of Doonagore Castle Tower Doolin, otherwise known as O’Brian’s Tower. I don’t often do on site drawings or paintings of something ‘real’, but I did enjoy it! So often my practice involves delving into the unseen, and trying to make it visible, it was a change to simply look and try to imitate with a pen, a brush and some ink and water, what I saw. Today was the first time I have tried to draw what was in front of me for nearly a year, I would say. I used to do it a lot years ago in every sort of weather condition. Once my friend and I almost took flight of a rocky mountainside near Ballyvaughan with huge boards, the rain nearly washed both our paintings away! Today I enjoyed the comfort of sitting in the car!
