Artists Eye: Coast of Clare

Coast of Clare by Jacqueline White
The Coast of Clare by Jacqueline White www.jwhiteart.com

This is a scene off the Coast Road in County Clare between Fanore and Doolin includes a view of Galway in the far distance. Jacqueline painted, ‘Coast of Clare’ on location on a warm July day during a 2-week stay in the Burren.

Her ancestors hail from Headford and Kilgarven, in County Kerry, and she has visited twice from her home state of Connecticut. Jacqueline says, “Ireland’s beautiful and wild landscape fueled me with endless
inspiration.”

  1. I love the picture – she captures the colour and movement of the sea brilliantly, and the light really dances off the rocks in the top right hand corner. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks for your kind comments. This painting was one of those that almost painted itself and an experience that has always stayed with me. I hope to go back someday soon soley to paint!
