Ballymaloe House Paint-Out

I joined a neighbouring plein air group for a paint-out at beautiful Ballymaloe House yesterday. It was a dull misty morning, but cleared up a little in the afternoon. I had to look hard to find some colour in the morning, but found these dahlias in the yard.

Since the sun was coming and going in the afternoon, I settled for this shaded corner of the garden for my second painting.

Both paintings are exquisite - I love the misty atmosphere.

Thanks Claire. There's no shortage of that mist here!
