I was driving back from Sandycove a few weeks ago, after a short afternoon with Dublin Sketchers. Short because the weather was too cold to hold a pen or a paintbrush for more than 10 minutes!
On my way home, I decided to take the coast road. I don't know why. It just felt right. When I got near Seapoint, the sky just lit up. It was so wonderful I had to park, get out of the car, and take lots of pictures.
When I got home, I knew I had to paint that feeling!
Here is one of the original photos (taken with my iPhone -it's not new, but it takes nice photos when the light is right):
