Hill Walker Oil on wood. 4″x6″

I needed to explore some color options for an upcoming portrait, so I decided to do a quick little Paul Henry inspired painting.

Previous to living in Ireland, I was unaware of Paul Henry’s work. I first saw it in the National Gallery. I admire his simple, and yet grand, interpretation of the Irish landscape. I realize Henry may be old hat to many Irish artists, so please bear with yet another embarrassingly enamored American!

Here are two more Henry inspired paintings.
