South William Street Paintings

A collection of prints of the South William Street area of Dublin by Irish artist Chris McMorrow

A small gathering of paintings that include the many pubs, cafes, bars and restaurants on this narrow little street that stretches from the crossroads at Andrew Street, Exchequer and Wicklow streets to Johnson Place, beside the Stephens Green Centre. It is always busy with traffic and people, and I try to convey this in the paintings with people with umbrellas hurrying about past shop and cafe windows, lit up like bright beacons, crossing the wet street reflecting the cool blues and greys of the sky above and the warm yellows and oranges from windows and doorways.
