Over the past week we have had very stormy weather, one day in particular the wind speed was in excess of 70 mph and the waves were SPECTACULAR! I grabbed the camera and we headed for Ballintoy. The only other people there were, of course, other mad folk with cameras just like us.
I have never seen such waves at Ballintoy – what a wonderful opportunity to get some new painting reference material. The wind and driving rain did make photography really difficult [one man actually got blown off his feet!] but I managed to take over 300 pics – now all I have to do is find some time to sit and sort them out.
I can hardly wait to get started on some new paintings. This time I’ve decided to take photos of each work in progress and post them here along with a write up of my painting process.
