|Three Harbor Views, Kinvara 6"x6" watercolors, Linda Knoll|
We ventured to several coastal towns, castles, and natural wonders in the part of Ireland called the Burren, a plateau of limestone rock jutting out of the ocean. The history, natural and cultural, was fascinating. There were rock walls everywhere, filled with fossils and flowers!
|Rock walls cover Innisheer island.|
Four days of the trip were occupied with a plein air watercolor workshop presented by Grahame Booth, a wonderful watercolor painter from Belfast, Northern Ireland. Below are a few of my favorite photos, and paintings I did while I was there. More paintings to come now that I'm back in the studio!
