Grafton Street Paintings

A collection of prints of the Grafton Street area of Dublin by Irish artist Chris McMorrow.

Many of my paintings of Grafton Street, Dublin, are painted in the early evening time so that I can capture the bright lights of the shop windows and streetlamps, illuminating the people out shopping on this always busy street. I like to try and capture the vibrancy and colour of this crowded thoroughfare, sometimes focussing on a particular couple under a colourful umbrella, or maybe window-shopping outside a store, and I also like to play around with the reflections on the soft cobbled street that mirror the blues and purples of a darkening sky, side by side with the warm oranges and yellows spilling from the windows and doorways.
