Clontarf Castle, Dublin - 589
Painting of Clontarf Castle, on Castle Avenue, Clontarf,Dublin. Original castle built here around the 1200's but this version dates from the 1800's and has been modernised and extended quite recently. I painted this from an angle that would block out the new 'glassy' part as I just wanted to capture the older stonework. I used acrylics on stretched canvas.
Sometimes my interest is piqued and I like to research some of my painting subjects, especially Dublin street scenes and pubs and bars and am often amazed at some of the snippets of curious information I come across. Follow this link to read one or two about Clontarf Castle …
