Irish Landscapes in Watercolour (Ready to Paint) || Dermot Cavanagh

I suspect the broad usp of this is going to be the popular artist Dermot Cavanagh rather than the subject matter, effective though that is.

There’s a good variety of subjects here, including vernacular and formal buildings, and Dermot is particularly good on the use of colour to create shape, depth and recession. Ireland isn’t known as “the emerald isle” for nothing and he is also particularly sound on what Val Doonican once described as “forty shades of green”. As a general exercise in landscape painting, this is definitely worth a look.
