Day 6:  Ireland ART TREK
Afternoon location: Dingle Peninsula and Killarney Castle
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
 
On
the 6th afternoon of Ireland Art Trek, we continued to paint on the
castle grounds while the photographers and tourists finished exploring
the Dingle Peninsula. I chose to paint the castle’s guest house because I
love how it was nestled back in the woods, feeling so nostalgic of a
visit to grandma’s in the country. The massive unusual pine trees were
so awe-inspiring that I used them to frame the right half of the scene,
leading your eye down the path to the yellow house safely tucked in
among the lush foliage. A soft light would appear off and on,
illuminating the scene and creating that unique Irish light. That
evening we all reconnected and dined again on another delicious dinner
in town.
