an extremely sad period in Irish history. This painting is charged with emotion. Excellent work. I am moved to ignore some of the anomalies because it all works so well. (the two light sources in the sky for example) I would love to see this as you complete it...also could you tell us more about what we are seeing?

Agree with Corby. Just wonderful work. I suggest that the three parallel light rays are too regular and should be randomized a bit.

A very dramatic painting. Excellent usage of light.

How somber yet beautiful. For the mood of the peice I would keep the top light with the darker cloud below it and omit the bottom light with the rays altogether. After looking at it again, I think mabe if you loosened up the dark cloud and had your rays coming down from there it would still work for the light you have in the background of the city.
