TITLE “Two Red Sails” Irish boat art drawing, Kinvara, Ireland.
MEDIUM An original charcoal and chalk drawing

Two Galway Hookers sailing through Kinvara harbour as the sun began to set.

We were at the Cruinniunam Bad Festival held every year in Kinvara to celebrate these beautiful boats.

Their sails, made from calico were covered in a solution made from tree bark or a tar and butter mix. This would protect and weatherproof them, known as ‘barking the sails’, giving Galway Hookers their distinctive red coloured sails.

I love the bright red colour of their sails and wanted to celebrate them in this, and other, artworks.

The Process:-

Drawing on my degree in Fine Art, I create a charcoal drawing first, then a colourful oil pastel painting of the scene. I use both of these to create the fibre landscape from.
