Lough Swilly A4

£329.00

Lough Swilly

Lough Swilly is painted on acrylic on A4 paper.  This painting is presented in a mount and cellophane wrap.

Greens, yellows, and blues bring this beach view to life, lightening the blue to show movement in the water. Look closely and you will see the flecks of purple in the headlands to show the accent of colour I like to use.  A stunning piece that would hold space on any wall.

 

A great gift for art lovers.

All original artwork is shipped free of charge.

Personalised gift notes can be added at checkout.

The inspiration behind Lough Swilly

‘Mayim’ the Hebrew name for water.

My ‘Mayim’ exhibition was a virtual exhibition that consisted of a live stream while I sat in formal attire in front of my laptop talking my audience through the various paintings. Lockdown and coronavirus meant that even the artists had to adapt!

The paintings and the exhibition were inspired by my love of water. Water and waves at the beach, water in the lakes and waterfalls in the North and South of Ireland. I trust that you enjoy the brush or palette marks of each scene.

Mayim prices starting from £159

 

About Lough Swilly

Lough Swilly (IrishLoch Súilí, meaning “Lake of Shadows” or the “Lake of Eyes”) in Ireland is a glacial fjord or sea inlet lying between the western side of the Inishowen Peninsula and the Fanad Peninsula, in County Donegal. Along with Carlingford Lough and Killary Harbour it is one of three glacial fjords in Ireland.

The lough, and the Grianán Ailigh hill fort at its south eastern bend, were recorded on Ptolemy‘s map of the world. It has a number of early Stone Age monuments and Iron Age fortifications along its shores, as well as a number of shell middens dated to approximately 7000 BC.

During the First World War, the lough was used by the Royal Navy as an anchorage for elements of the Grand Fleet, an amalgamation of the pre-war Home and Atlantic Fleets, under Admiral Sir John R. Jellicoe and a gathering/staging point for Atlantic convoys.

Lough Swilly is steeped in history and holds a very important part in Ireland’s war time efforts.

Aly works from a studio near Belfast which is conducive to her family life with her husband and their three young boys.

She is passionate about placing importance on everyday moments, objects and places in her oil paintings and pastel work.This is one of the many reasons Aly is a well established artist in Belfast, Northern Ireland and the United States of America.

Her practice is influenced heavily by her own childhood memories of growing up in a smallholding in the Irish countryside.

Themes of the familiar and familial can be traced back as far as her degree show in 2003 when her installation “Daddy’s bread” used 795 empty bread bags (of her father’s favourite loaf) to represent each week from when her Father passed until the opening of her final exhibition.

Aly was awarded a first class honours degree and a distinction in her Masters in Fine Art which she completed following her degree. Specializing in Acrylic, oil and Mixed Media Aly has a love for creating stunning vibrant paintings.  Along with a love of monochrome and simple sketches.
