Railway Houses

This is a painting I started a few weeks ago before the day job became very full on and I didn’t get a chance to finish it. Had a bit of a break from work last night and managed to finish the painting before the workload picks up again tomorrow.

This is a view from Newcommen Bridge in Dublin’s northside that I painted from a photograph taken on my walk home from work. I think this particular scene always interests me as I walk past it as it captures a part of Dublin city, old and new; the oldworldly terraced houses, railway tracks and canal to the foreground overshadowed by imposing, blocky modern architecture looming in the background.

Watercolours on watercolour paper.
