A Day in Courtown

Our plein air group went to Courtown in North Co Wexford yesterday. It started off cloudy, then rained for a couple of hours, and then became sunny but very windy - a good Irish day then! Actually, it worked out quite well, because the rain came just as we were about to break for lunch.

I wasted about twenty minutes painting my frst one, when one of the boats disappeared! So I had to start again. This time I fell for the charms of the "Brazen Hussy", hard to resist that bright colour on a dull morning.

I didn't start my second until almost 4-00 pm, waiting for the light conditions to become more settled. I was rewarded with lovely glowing light.

Finally, here a photos of both scenes:-
