Artwork from Ireland – Decorative wrought-iron roof canopy at one of the weather shelters at Dún Laoghaire, County Dublin.

I would say this is possibly from the Art Nouveau era and fortunately has been very well preserved.

The photo image has been simplified into a black & white graphic image for a more dramatic effect, as the sky through the ironwork on that particular day was rather dull.

Artwork from Ireland.

    Great new piece Orla! Very celtic and rustic looking. Love the high contrast and shadowy look you added to it.

    I think I may have binned my gate drawing but I will have another go. You have given me a soft kick up the bum to get creative! Thank you Orla!
