It’s amazing what you can find when you’re searching online for a particular shot of Greystones.
Take one wrong turn, and you find something so very, very right. A few days ago, it was Bray artist Val Byrne’s stunning take on the boat slip at the old harbour. Today, it’s this commissioned work of Greystones harbour by Scotland-based Italian artist Walter Bernardino.
Walter has some beautiful paintings of many an Irish beauty spot on his site, and, as we delved further into his site, we spotted another Greystones portrait. This time, the trees up on Coolagad.
This is what Walter had to say about this particular painting…
This ink and watercolour painting is of a hill called Coolagad near the seaside town of Greystones in Co. Wicklow, Ireland. It was commissioned by a lady as a present for her husband on his70th birthday to remind him of the place where she thought he used to play as a boy.
Thankfully for all concerned, it turned out to be the right spot.
