Ireland



Wow, was this an exhilarating trip! We went all over Ireland visiting so many types of places from cities to the countryside to the seashore. Ireland is a land of many beautiful sights.

I've shown almost all the pages I painted for this class. These are the final versions after corrections or enhancements were made after the gentle critiquing from Laure was done. I still need to come up with a cover and I am not showing one for which we didn't have permission to share our work with anyone outside of the classroom. (I guess that means if you want to know what it was, you'll just have to take the class and remember that is with Imaginary Trips with Laure Ferlita as the tour guide).

If you are wanting to paint flowers, keep an eye on Imaginary Trips as I do believe there is going to be a class for that soon.

Wow Timare-these are wonderful pages. I particularly like the cliffs of Mohr--the shading on them is so good!

You know, it really looks like you are painting memories!! What an exciting trip. AND your art is sooo good.

wow, it certainly did look as though you went on a fantastic trip..and I guess you did..love all of your paintings..I especially enjoyed the connemara one with the castle in the background. I have actually used connemara marble (only found there) in a few designs and it is so beautiful. What a lovely group of paintings you have!

Fabulous work Timaree and I have thoroughly enjoyed remembering my own past visits to Ireland. :-) xx

Jacq said...

Your paintings are beautiful. Looks like it was a great "trip".

These are fantastic! I've been certain parts of Ireland and yes they are as beautiful as the drawings you did.
:) Thanks for your suggestion, I know that it'd be really nice if we could go home next March but with my wife's school schedule it's almost impossible not to make the trip during her long summer break. The increasing gas price due to crisis everywhere isn't helping that's for sure, and there's no telling when these will subside... we'll just have to see, or I'll have to find another way to get more money

Wow, you went to Ireland! That's awesome. I would love to go there someday. And, yes, I have made a few pink poodles. There is one listed as made-to-order in my etsy shop! :D

These are wonderful - are you traveling with anyone else - do they do something while you sketch and paint? I'd love to hear the process.

Great "trip" to Ireland, Timaree! I love it when you show the entire trip at once.
