A trip to Ireland and Scotland with the girls – 5

Next we traveled through the truly majestic Inagh Valley in the Connemara district.

I was tempted to include all of its visual delights tiny villages, stone bridges spanning rushing creeks and waterfalls, flocks of fluffy black-faced sheep, the occasional Connemara pony but decided to confine my painting to the basic mountain scenery, without even trying to work in an outcropping of green Connemara marble.

Perhaps I will have some of these embellishments in the next painting an all-encompassing panorama of Kylemore Abbey and the Victorian walled garden at the head of the valley.
