"Rossaveal, Ireland," watercolor and pen on paper, Jane Sloss, 2010
On my recent trip to Ireland, I returned from the Aran Islands on a ferry to Rossaveal. I stayed a bed and breakfast on the road to Galway. As I parked my bike on the side of the B & B, I was completely mystified by the scene which lay behind the home. The sunset was brilliant over the bay. After settling into my room, I went outside and tried to capture the scene. Painting a sunset is an interesting undertaking as the image is changing dramatically with each minute. It was marvelous! I'll be posting photos from Rossaveal on my public facebook page tomorrow--stop by!
What are some of your favorite places to catch a sunset? What do you think of this sketch from Rossaveal?
