Kate Beagan is Ireland's foremost leading landscape artist. Born in County Monaghan Kate chooses oil as her chosen medium. This series of paintings depict the Irish landscape in and around the Carlingford Slieve Guillion area
Kate finds the challenge of converting the transient Irish light onto the landscape and then conveying this light and subject onto canvas compelling. The iconic red irish shed door draws us immediately to the centre of the painting giving a sense of Irish rural life and peacefulness.
The subject matter is conveyed with directness spontaneity and bold expressive strokes applied with various tools and brushes to create a painting thats as tactile as it is expressive
The painting measures 30 x30 cms and is complimented with a white wooden frame completed by Kate's husband Kevin
