Kingdom of Mourne by Les Sharpe

Acrylic and Oil on canvas, 40×60cms.
This is a view from Scrabo Tower, Newtownards which looks across County Down all the way to the Mourne Mountains.
This was on one of those beautiful, atmospheric days spent with friends just wiling the afternoon away. We climbed the steep hills to Scrabo Tower to be greeted with this glorious view. The dramatic sky really brought out the magical slendour of the Mourne Country.

    I spent a summer in Cavan and was spellbound by these mountains,,,

  • There definitely is something magical about this range of mountains that has inspired so many artists throughout the years. As you might have noticed, my gallery contains several pictures inspired by different views of the Mournes. I can probably say quite confidently, that there will more than likely be a lot more in the future. I hope they will always be of inspiration to myself and many more to come.

    Les, great color contrast of orange and green with the blue/grey sky. Wonderful ‘moodiness’. I love it!

  • Thank you Jeff for such a glowing compliment. I really appreciate it.
