Abbey river and bridge, Limerick City
Oil on prepared Mdf panel 20x24in (51x61cm)
This shows a view of the Abbey River and bridge on a cool winter morning. The use of compressed values and restrained colour help to depict the pearly light of this rather typical grey day. Long fluid brush marks emphasize the flowing water. This painting was worked up from a small sketch done on location.
About the materials:
This painting is on an mdf board which has been sealed and gessoed before paint application. As there is no grain the board is resistant to warping. However it is recommended that this work be framed before hanging to protect the corners from accidental impact damage.
I use Royal Talens Cobra and Micheal Harding brand oil paints they give fantastic colour and clarity with lightfast pigments.
