This is a print version of an original oil painting I did of Pearse Street in Dublin. The oil painting was based on a photograph I took in late Feburary in 2020 just before the lockdown. I tried to capture the hustle and bustle of early evening in rush hour when the lights were just coming on. It’s an impressionist/expressionist style painting. I kept the markmaking loose and fast to capture the atmosphere I felt being there. This method can be tricky, a realist style with careful rendering could actually be easier to do but just wouldn’t capture the vibe I was looking for. The original oil painting has been sold but I carefully photographed it and reproduced it as a more affordable limited print version.
The print edition is A2 (42cm in height and 59.5cm in length approx) and is a glicee print on acid free knotted paper similar to dry point etching.
