Derelict farmyard

Ink pigment and acrylic paint on acrylic paper.
11.5" x 8"

Really on a roll with these ink pigments although I have used small amounts of acrylic paint on this one. Another derelict farmyard that I would love to own, but wouldn't have the energy to renovate. Looking for a name for the painting....any suggestions?

Ink pigment on watercolour paper.
Image size 12"x 8"
Framed size 16"x 12"
I found this beautiful old wooden house in the middle of the forest on a birdwatching trip to Poland a few years ago. It seemed abandoned but had a satellite dish, so maybe it was lived in.Would have loved to own it , in such an idyllic spot.

Another derelict cottage believe it or not. Would buy it tomorrow if I had the money for the restoration. Oh well, have to be satisfied with painting it.

Derelict Cottages, Gap of Dunloe.
Ink pigment on watercolour paper. Framed size 18”x14”
For Sale €200.00

Couldn’t resist trying this one. These derelict cottages must have been photographed by just about everyone who visited the Gap, including me. Not sure what it is about dereliction that attracts me, maybe it’s the history of the place, who lived there, how many generations started their life there? Must have been a tough life.

Reference for this painting was a photo I took a few years ago in Ardmore, Co Waterford of the Protestant Church. It was the light that attracted me and I hope I have achieved this in the picture.
