Artist James Gurney was in Dublin recently and completed this watercolour painting of a scene near College Green in 2 hours. Despite the quick turnaround the weather changed on him twice and he has to remove the painting he started and start again!
James is the author and illustrator of the Dinotopia series of books (also adapted for television for Channel 4) and has a range of painting tutorial books that are an invaluable addition to any artist’s library of reference materials. He generously shares his painting and drawing knowledge on his YouTube channel and I look forward to every new video having pretty much exhausted his archive at this stage!
James is no stranger to Galway either and has painted around town including this beautiful scene from Woodquay.
