Radio chat about the Kerry Way Ultra and Cosmetic Surgery!
Sometimes when I’m sitting in the studio painting away and listening to the radio I hear something that makes me really mad. This was a chat about cosmetic surgery, everyone is at it apparently, which surprised me tbh. They were all very serious about it so I texted in with my tuppence worth, and before I knew it I was on the phone waiting for the ad break to end and Ciara Kelly to introduce me! Very exciting! So I told Ciara how you could look better for free if you took exercise, and this led nicely on to the recent 200km foot race I had just completed. Great opportunity to blow my own trumpet, and of course get a dig in about beating the hubby ;D
Thrilled to bits with the stand this year! Delighted to display my four latest large-size autumn scenes from Killarney National Park, and a great range of runners, florals and horses. 13 sales and 4 commissions.
Amazing to see the big paintings up, and the impact they had on the visitors! The Black Bridge stayed up in Dublin, going to a new home, and lots of measuring and interest on the other three!
Lovely to meet up with all my artist friends, and to chat to so many people. I’m very grateful to have the opportunity.
This is the new painting we’ll be doing, all step-by-step and a nice mix of brush and palette knife. Nothing too difficult to get us started, and then we’ll go on to an autumn scene using more palette knife.
The colours we use are Daler Rowney Georgian Oils, 75 ml tubes, available in The Dungeon, Killarney.
There are two new colours for this first painting: violet grey and cobalt blue.
The other colours are white, coeruleum hue, crimson alizarin, naples yellow, French ultramarine, raw sienna, burnt umber, paynes grey, yellow green, sap green, cadmium yellow, lemon yellow, burnt sienna.
Also a flat palette, a number 25 palette knife, the graduate brush number 1 or 2, and a bigger cheap bristle brush, eg number 10 round head. Phone me if any questions, I have spares of everything, so no panic.
All available at the Dungeon in killarney! ???? Looking forward to starting back! See you all soon, Tina
