Niki Purcell - Irish Landscape Paintings
I live on a headland and I am surrounded by cliffs on 3 sides, so I have an amazing view of the Sea and I love to walk along the nearby cliffs in all weathers…
I often see a lone Red fishing boat going by and it always catches my eye, I just love the way the red seems to sing against all the blues surrounding it and the sight makes me happy ….
This sighting was on a clear wintery afternoon with a howling wind that filled the sea with choppy waves and white horses…

Autumn Woods is a perfectly impasto painting inspired by a recent walk, in Enniskerry I just love the flaming colours of Autumn, with the golden colours and flaming reds of the Trees all set beside the greens of hedgerows, grass and than the blues of the sky….

Glendalough Sunset is from a series of works of this dramatic and spectacular Wicklow Landmark, from early childhood I remember summer family picnics there, being totally in awe of the history and mystic landscape….
The steep slopes with their Trees always seemed like perfect places for Robin Hood type figures to live, full of adventure for a child…. and then the still waters of the lake put me in mind of Lough Ness and its monster…..
Now as an adult Glendalough fills me with nostalgia for my childhood and inspires a romantic sense with its dramatic beauty and seemingly infinite peace and serenity

Through the Trees is a painting filled with Light, the glorious sunlight filtering through trees is so uplifting and always makes me happy..
This painting is inspired by a walk through the woods on Tara Hill near Gorey in Wexford with the colours of the path and forest floor mixed with the radiate light made for a lasting vision.
After the recent winter of rain this image seemed to be the best way to lift my spirits and look forward to spring….

I love the snow and how it makes the world seem so calm and serene, the muted colours of the snow covered landscape in contrast to the sky and hedgerows always catch my eye and beg to be painted….
Sunrise Snowscape is a painting filled with the vibrant colour of sunrise early on a Sunday morning, it had started to snow late the night before (I woke my daughter and went out for a snowball fight at 12.30 on the Saturday night!)
The contrast of the orange sky with the pale cliff tops was wonderful and the moment I returned home from the walk I started to paint this magical scene

Glorious Golden Summer Fields is a painting inspired by the golden yellow fields of Rapeseed flowers that surround me at the moment, the vibrant yellow seems to sing in the bright summer sunshine with the clear blue skies as a back drop and the vivid greens of the trees and hedgerows… and then the odd dash of colour from wild flowers… what a joy to see and to paint!

Heaven’s Light is a painting of the moment when light breaks through clouds and seems to shine a spotlight on the landscape below… a magical moment of drama as the clouds sail across the sky…
I stood in my garden watching as the clouds danced across the sky on a wintery showery afternoon filled with atmosphere, this painting is my tribute to that afternoon and its fleeting beauty and the seeming promise of light…. every cloud has its silver lining!
One side of the sky was dark stormy snow filled clouds and the other side had the sun trying to peep out and its rays of light lit up the world below like a torch
