Paintings on my easel... Harebells by the Sea, Portrush

This is today's painting...

Harebells by the Sea, Portrush (Oil, 10 x 10)

It's another little painting, this time of Northern Ireland on the Causeway Coast.  It was done at a place called Rinagree, which is on the road between Portrush and Portstewart on the Causeway coast.

This year, there weren't many orange montbretia,  but there were a lot of delicate little harebells.  I liked the contrast of their slightly lilacy blue against the deeper blue of the sea.

On a clear day you can see the coast of Scotland in the distance, including some of the islands of the Hebrides - Northern Ireland is really very close to Scotland and home.  No time at all on a plane, but quite a trek on a boat!
