100 Days of Art Study no. 95 - Acrylic Landscape Painting
A loose acrylic landscape painting inspired by Inishmore, county Galway, in the west of Ireland. Inishmore (Inis Mór in Gaelic) is the largest of the Aran Islands located off the west coast of Ireland not far from Galway. Despite having a population of less than 1000 people, the island is another of Ireland's top tourist attractions due to its unique history and culture.
The island is famous for its strong Irish culture, loyalty to the Irish language, and a wealth of Pre-Christian and Christian ancient sites including Dún Aonghasa. The landscape is not the typical green fields of Ireland. It’s rocky and desolate, an extension of the limestone that forms The Burren, to which the Arans were joined millions of years ago. The small patches of green you do see are surrounded by stone walls, segmenting the island into hundreds of tiny fields of shallow topsoil.
Besides its distinct landscape, Inishmore also has some large Iron Age stone structures. Very little is known about the people who built them, which only adds an air of mystery to the island.
What I like most about this site, besides all its natural beauty, is just peaceful it is. I’m looking forward to visiting it again.
