Our next stop was Kenmare which is near Killarney National Park.
This is an area of the park called "Ladies View" and you can see the three lakes in the park from this spot. The view was just gorgeous...but the weather wasn't. I painted this from the car because it was drizzling outside. Right around this spot we drove around a curve and found the car surrounded by sheep, a sheepherder, and a sheepdog...just like in the movies! (And where was my camera?...in the back seat!) We had to wait for them to clear the road before we could drive any further.
Then we went into the town of Kenmare where we were staying.
This is a view down the main street.
We ate at the Thady Quill Pub at the Lansdown Arms Hotel
and I sketched one of the customers reading.
The next morning we headed back to Shannon.
I had to make one stop at Bunratty Castle to sketch.
We returned our car and stayed overnight at the Park Inn Hotel at Shannon Airport.
The bar area offered some sketching opportunities.
My final sketches were done at Shannon Airport.
Here is our Aer Lingus plane waiting at the gate.
And one of the passengers waiting for our departure.
This wraps up my trip. Hope you enjoyed seeing the sketches and paintings.
