Yvonne King’s paintings evoke a sense of her native Irish seaside and country landscape.
I love spending time outdoors in the natural beauty of Connemara ever since I was a child growing up in Roundstone village – an artists paradise.
These paintings are my interpretation of familiar sights in Connemara- seascapes, moonlit landscapes, cottages and water lilies dotting the small lakes on bog roads. I hope you enjoy them as I enjoyed painting them.
It was a privilege to paint in the Studio of Scottish artist Douglas Anderson, Royal Painter, for 4 years – total immersion in the Old Master techniques in drawing and oil painting and a lot of fun as well!
I have been inspired and influenced by many of the artists who painted in Connemara and the west of Ireland.
