The ruins of Selskar Abbey, County Wexford, Ireland

A digital watercolour created in DAP with additional PP in Photoshop cs 5.1 from my original image taken with a Canon powershot s90

Many thanks to everyone who views my work. Comment if you wish, but I’m afraid I am unable to respond or reciprocate at this moment in time.

THE remains of the once celebrated priory of St. Peter and St. Paul, usually styled Selskar, are situated near the west gate of Wexford.

The first treaty ever signed in Ireland with the English was on this spot, in the year 1169, when the town of Wexford surrendered to Dermod M’Murrough and his allies.

This church, with six others, were demolished by order of Oliver Cromwell, when in possession of the town in 1649. Source library Ireland

As a child my plane crashed in the Himalayas & I was raised by an advanced civilisation that taught me photography, ESP & precognition, no, wait that was the Champions wasn’t it?

Ah well, 50+ & getting more muddled by the day.

Hope you enjoy my work, and feel free to buy anything you like enough. :-)

    really thought this was a painting!

  • Thanks B, sadly I lack that talent. You ought to try DAP though, you’d love it. You seldom get great results leaving it on auto without some sort of intervention though, & you can waste a lot of time trying umpteen sets of brushes, and it almost always needs tweaking in PS after, but I think you’d enjoy playing with it. You can downlaod a free version to try…
