Irish artist Bill O'Brien, Cork and Dublin

My introduction to art began at Corks Crawford Gallery where I attended art school haviing won a local children's art competition. As a painter I consider myself to be self-taught although have received drawing and painting tuition from several artists and began painting in oils in 1990. I strive for atmosphere in my paintings capturing serene mood. I am inspired by morning and evening light and my preferred media are oil and acrylic. I like to paint loosely using impressionistic layering/glazing techniques whilst still maintaining some focus on attention to detail.
