…winter comes in many colour guises and mountains clamour for a textural approach…this somewhat surreal painting truly depicts the moon halo rising on a snowy winter night with distinct ‘bands’ of colour radiating out … 

William Percy French wrote song lyrics which included ‘The Mountains of Mourne roll down to the Sea’ which indeed they do – a granite mountain range in Northern Ireland, sea and lough views and a high peak to 2750 feet.

Of the many Mourne photos in our collection we confess we do not have one of moon-rise over the Mourne Mountains. This painting is inspired by the astonishing image (kindly granted) by Robert Mckee of RBM photography.
