Webcam en plein air

'Webcam en plein air' is a project exploring the traditional nature of paining en plein air and the contemporary subject matter of painting from webcams. I've chosen webcams from around Ireland. As an Irish artist living abroad, I wanted to touch on the subject of emigration and location.

When I lived in Ireland I would often paint the local landscape, this is something of an homage to that and the romanticised view of one's homeland.

The webcam paintings must be completed very quickly, with changing skies and inhabitants. I plan on returning to a number of these locations and painting again, with different results. Something that can be missing through painting from photographs.
