262 Ross Castle

Usually, a small painting is done as a study for a larger one. In this case, it was the other way around. I painted a large acrylic, 16 x 20 of this scene for a painting class that was being held on St. Patrick's Day. It was based on a photo sent to me by a friend whose ancestral home was Ross Castle. Small paintings need simple elegant design and so do paintings for a class. So it was only natural to add Ross Castle to the 1hundred paintings series. 
Now I am thinking of looking through photos of our trip to Killarney. I did a number of watercolours while there, but the ruins of an 12th century priory on the island of Inishfallen across the lake from Ross Castle still remind me that they need painting also....
