|Golden Blanket Bog |
in Oil 24x20 canvas
Kenneth Webb enjoys the beauty of the traditional Irish Landscape, as seen in Connemara. The colours and shapes caused by the traditional hand cutting of peat are captured in his paintings, as is the atmosphere of the bog.
in Oil 24x16 canvas
Only recently, Kenneth has begun to Tutor in Wicklow, in a joint Garden Course with his daughter, Susan. This picture was inspired and painted in the Wicklow garden.
|Field Poppies and Moon Daisies|
in Oil 20x16 canvas
Poppies are a favourite subject of Kenneth's and some of his greatest works have been created in his own garden. The fascination with poppies he shares with the Impressionists, like Monet, and his treatment of them, make these paintings something that will be appreciated for generations to come. There are few Artists that are immortalised through their work, and even fewer become aware of that, in their lifetime. Kenneth Webb is fortunate to be such an Artist.
|Passing Shower Glendalough|
in Watercolour on paper 22" x 15"
Susan captures the misty quality of Glendalough, Wicklow with a passing shower, not unusual to the area.

This painting was started early in the morning by Susan Webb at Mt. Usher Gardens in Ashford, County Wicklow where the Irish School of Landscape Painting holds painting courses. Susan's painting demonstration was for the students keen enough to come out so early and while it produced this outstanding result.

Bobby was a very close friend to both Susan and her son. Sadly he dropped dead in his field last September from
(we assume) a heart attack. He did not suffer at all. It is great to have the opportunity to put ones feelings into paint and be able to come to terms with a new set of circumstances in this way.
in Oil on Canvas 16" x 20"
A very good friend of Susan's was looking after this mare, and her foal for her brother so Susan had ample opportunity to observe and paint this tender moment.
|Co. Down Farm|
in Mixed Media 15" x 22"
This is an unusual painting of Susan's being more akin to her father's work. It was made as a demonstration to a class of mixed media technique. This is really a fun way to paint and a fantastic way to loosen up. It is a very fluid and expressive way of working.
|Ladies At Leisure|
in Oil on Canvas 30" x 40"
The mare on the right is Susan's mare, Aquarius. The painting shows the sheer delight in "being" as the two friends immerse themselves in the pleasure of rolling in the sun. "Horses bring me back to being fully physically present when the pressures of life can have ones mind drifting off to the hundred things that need doing that day" says Susan.
in Watercolour on Paper 15" x 22"
This a demonstration of a "Turneresque" technique, again given during Susan's spell as Irish Art Expert on Watercolour Challenge for Channel 4. This time it was used in the Watercolour Challenge book as an illustration of the three different types of watercolour one needs to chose from when beginning a painting.
|Connemara Ponies, Ballinahinch|
in oil on canvas 24" x 16"
This began life as an hour long demonstration of painting in oils. The site is at the end of the old bog road a mile and a half from our Connemara studio. Once the demonstration was finished the scene caught Susan's imagination and this is what she produced.
in Oil on Canvas 12" x 10"
Susan has always loved the idea of riding on the beach and whilst she has been lucky enough to experience that thrill a few times in her life, more often than not this is how she enjoys it; by portraying what she would love to be doing!
in Watercolour on Paper 15" x 11"
Susan Webb painted this at Mt. Usher Gardens in Ashford, County Wicklow where the Irish School of Landscape Painting holds painting courses. The waterlillies attract artists for these courses to paint and watch Susan's demonstrations.
Watercolour on Paper 22" x 15"
Susan Webb painted these waterlillies at the end of the day at Mt. Usher Gardens in Ashford, County Wicklow where the Irish School of Landscape Painting holds painting courses. Those students fortunate enough to attend the painting course that day saw one painting in the morning, work in the afternoon and another demonstration in the evening.
