The thing that intrigued me most about this scene from Ireland are the contrasting colors of the North Atlantic Ocean, and the sheer rugged cliffs of the Irish Dingle peninsulas.

Liquin Impasto mixed with rich-hued pigments painted over a cerulean toned canvas creates incredible texture and detail. The jewel tones in the water are achieved by mixing several blues into the semi transparent impasto gel.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Kent

There are more places Kent Sullivan would like to paint than he ever will be able. Employing many of the Hudson River School methods in his landscapes, Kent captures the ephemeral interactions of clouds, sun and earth with his delicate use of color and gesture. His work is published in two prominent books: "Art of the National Parks" and "Picturing Florida." He has lectured at museums and been sought after by many large corporations. “Several years ago I had the incredible fortune of being part of the NASA art program. Five paintings are now part of the Smithsonian Collection. At one gathering at the Kennedy Space Center, Leonard Nimoy came up and asked me for my autograph!”
