Mounted Pen & Ink and Watercolour Original Painting – 16.5″(42cm) x 12″(30cm) – including the mount
This is an exclusive collection of drawings that Ruth Wood has created especially for the discerning art buyers and collectors of Kilbaha Gallery. These beautiful drawings are original works (no prints of the same) and thus are highly collectable. Ruth is one Ireland’s most talented and recognisable contemporary Pen & Ink artists. Her work is highly sought after.
The ‘Querrin Pier and Handball Alley’ is a gorgeous painting of this well maintained local landmark on the Shannon side of the Loop Head Peninsula – beautifully depicted in pen & ink and watercolour. According to the The ‘Kilkee.Clare Heritage’ website, the first Querrin Pier Handball Alley was built in 1910 by the local people and it was to have two major improvements in 1945 and 1985 to become the structure it is today.
Ruth says of this series:
“This series of paintings are based on the small communities on the loop head peninsula. It’s easy to miss the subtle views that define the visual aesthetic of this area. Capturing the following scenes was a pleasant creative project. The bends on the road into Cross Village, a lone cow framed by an overgrown ditch near Rahona, the handball Alley at Quirren Pier and the village of Kilbaha have been the inspiration for this series of watercolour, pen and ink paintings”
