“Blackwater” a plein air painting video by Rod Coyne

High speed a plein air painting with Rod Coyne: “Blackwater”

“I had a fantastic few days painting in the Tourin Estate, it’s a compelling blend of history and nature and an artist’s delight. This River Blackwater painting was just one of four paintings exhibited October 2016. You can read the full story here. The river which runs down to the sea at Dungarvin is a painters paradise.

“Thanks to the Kelly Family Band (beloved of The Barleyshakes) for a superb soundtrack 🙂 And a special thanks to Andrea Jameson and her wonderful sisters at Tourin House & Gardens.”

– Rod Coyne
