Part of the ’71’ exhibition in December 2018 this is a depiction of a favourite view; Belfast Docks using palette knife and my favourite thick, thick paint.
Yellows pop depicting the Harland and Wolff cranes, off whites show the titanic building. So many bright vibrant colours highlighting our bright vibrant city.
A little about the exhibition this was part of
December 2018’s exhibition of ‘71’ dainty Irish scenes took place at Omnibus Home on the Lisburn Road Belfast.
Each miniature painting was made with expression and love. I used a palette knife and my tiniest brushes to present detail and to add character.
The pieces showcased beautiful details such as little horses or people on beaches and the change of colour grade in mountain scenes and seascapes. The locations are from all over Ireland, some close to my heart and others I wish to visit. The aim with each painting was to transport you, even on this small scale to a place of familiarity, of sight and of sound.
A unique look at Goliath of Harland and Wolff with Cavehill and the striking sunset behind.
Belfast Beauty was made using acrylic, mixed from the primary colors red, yellow, and blue. Then finished with willow charcoal to add depth and vibrancy. The yellow of the crane’s ties so wonderfully with the skyline behind and the fluorescent-lit up industrial area.
The original painting was donated to The Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul (SVP) by Aly to help raise funds and awareness of their annual Family Appeal Stuff A Bus campaign which provides children living in poverty in Northern Ireland with a gift to open on Christmas Day.
Raising more than £2,100 from 155 supporters, a very lucky donator was drawn as the recipient of ‘Belfast Beauty’.
About the artist
Aly is a Northern Irish based Artist, Writer and Educator. One of Northern Ireland’s top artists, widely known for her Belfast prints and impressionist techniques. She has several accolades to her name, most recently:
> Nominated 40 under 40
> Listed as top 100 / Small Business Saturday

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.

I use art in all it’s mediums to express my love for the “everyday”. Coffee cups, familiar landmarks, colour associations. All of these, I believe, contribute to what is known as our “everyday”. Not only do I love drawing them, I think they are worth placing importance on.
