PADRAIG McCAUL from IRELAND

If you have had the opportunity to visit Ireland, it is hard to not fall in love with this beautiful enchanting country. The landscape of rolling hills and Irish cottages captivates travelers. We are pleased to present Padraig, an Irish artist that creates landscape paintings that literally make you feel as if you are visiting this charming country. According to Padraig, “There is a special energy deeply rooted in the landscape of the west. It is that which I aim to capture in my paintings. I like to immerse myself in a particular place, walking the beaches, hills and mountains, discovering the views and looking for those moments when the perfect composition for a painting seems to jump out at you. I aim to achieve a harmony between the land, sea and sky”. He carries a sketchbook and camera on most of his walks and once he has returned to the studio Padraig will use the photos and sketches to begin working the canvas with very rough brush outines. According to Padraig, “The painting is then brought to life with the palette knife using primarily pure unmixed colors which are blended into the canvas or laid on thick.”
