Kinsale Bay



Begonias blooming against the backdrop of waterfront cottages and idle boats, can you imagine a more picturesque scene? I was pinching myself last fall when drinking up this lovely vista in the Irish village of Kinsale on the southern coast. We were chasing the sunshine, so our host in Doolin up north advised us to head south east to find this brand new (to us) and completely delightful bay side hamlet.This painting is a result of some photo op walks about town and was done with a brush and a palette knife. As a result it almost feels like you can pick those close up blossoms!
