From the Patio Near Folly Beach. Watercolour on paper. 52cm x 42cm, mounted. In private collection, Ireland.
Painted from the patio of our rented house on Folly Beach, South Carolina. This is a few streets away from the sea and there is an amazing mix of mature trees, shrubs and gardens. Through the archway created by trees and overhanging foliage, you can make out a neighbouring street. I’m trying to see ‘how far’ I can work the colours, while still keeping a freshness to the picture.
