Sugarloaf from Luisne, Kilcoole No 2



Sugarloaf from Luisne, Kilcoole No 2. Oil on canvas. 126cm x 96cm, framed. For sale.

Sugarloaf is another important landmark, located a few miles south of where I live, in County Wicklow. It’s one of those mountains that seems to change colour every few minutes, just like the seasons here!

I painted it on a large canvas with an extended foreground, to give the sensation of being in the actual place. I also wanted the composition to have a strong dynamic. It’s very similar to the watercolour Sugarloaf from Luisne, Kilcoole and you can see  Sugarloaf from other vantage points in my Ganymede and Powerscourt landscape paintings and drawings.
