David McClelland – My Irish art retreat


I’m just back from my yearly Irish art retreat where I spent a week in a set of restored stone farmyard buildings located in the town of Shillelagh, County Wiclow, Ireland.

Even though it rained for the majority of the week I could not help but be inspired by the area. Over the week I did a series of sketches and paintings that focused on the small details, which I felt, made the area unique.
