Artwork from Ireland. (Original painting has been done in Acrylics on board)
A summer scene in my hometown of Galway which is on the west coast of Ireland.

My first ever painting…….. completed when I was 18 years old.
In a ‘pointillist’ style ……influenced by post-Impressionist painter Georges Seurat (1855-1891) who invented the post-impressionist style of ‘Pointillism’ and influenced Signac to paint in the same style.

This particular scene is of ‘The University College Boat Club’ in Galway.

    This is very enchanting. And they stuck a building there…well of coarse they did.

  • Thank you David. Yeah there’s a big building there now but I have to say it’s an attractive one. Like your cartoons. Very comical.

    A gorgeous work Orla, would love to see you do more of this.

  • Thank you Jim. Well to be honest I have had the urge to paint again after an absence from it for many years. And I have to say I enjoyed painting in the pointillist style. Hope I take it up soon again.
