After the Storm

I'm just back from a week's vacation on beautiful Valentia Island in Co Kerry. The first couple of days were wet and stromy, but then it settled down. I painted this one after heavy overnight rain and wind. Everything still felt wet, but there was a beautiful crispness to the morning air.

So much depth and such a great image of the wonderful Valentia coastline. You have caught the atmosphere 'post storm' perfectly. Up there with your best.
