'Mullagh Tower and Tullamore', watercolour, 54 x 34 cm.
The Mullagh Tower in Co Offaly in Ireland is a folly built upon a hilltop. In the background here is the town of Tullamore, caught in a sunray! The tower has since been restored and is now whitewashed and smooth - here it is shown in its unrestored state and natural stone colour. The painting was constructed from some photos of the tower supplied by our client, and a map. I hope the field shapes and other features are accurate - they all fit together at least!
The original painting was sold by commission.
