The sea adjoining Ciarraí can often catch colours of the tropics – turquoise and fizzy greens that don’t quite match our inky skies. I have been greatly infleunced by Sorolla this past year – visiting his studio in Madrid and seeing his shows in London and Dublin. I wonder how he might have painted our sea – with all the drama but not so much sun, I imagine the Spaniard may have had much to say in paint.
