Donegal, Ulster, in Ireland

I have just returned from a lovely family holiday in Downings (sometimes Downies or more correctly Na Dúnaibh in Gaelic)  in Donegal.

The small seaside town of Downings is in the Rosguill Peninsula of North Donegal and we were staying on the famous “Atlantic drive” with a great view towards Horn Head and Tory Island.  Lots of opportunities to paint some watercolours which although all done quickly will be  references for more studio paintings.

We were lucky there with the weather too, as it can often be rather wet in this north west corner of Ireland.

Here are a weeks worth of paintings showing some of the scenery and the beautiful sandy beaches, although the sea is rather cold there!

A quiet and relaxing holiday destination, with stunning scenery.

About brianswatercolours

After spending 40 years in Aerospace I now enjoy painting watercolours of our travels around the world. I also paint for others who would like reminders of there favourite places. Most of my paintings are painted from photos that I have taken, or taken by others. This blog shows some paintings from Yvonne's and my travels together. Have look at my other Blog www.aquarellesdefrance.wordpress.com
