Limited palette oil painting of mill and weir at Castletown village

Public seating is provided at the weir in Castletown as it is a popular local picnic and swimming spot.
There is also a fantastic walk along the river Nore. The walk is half a mile or so long with otter and kingfisher to be seen if you are lucky.

I just needed a travel easel and small oil painting box to complete this picture. I used a limited palette and finished this painting over two morning sessions on days with brilliant sunshine and rain showers. (Typical Irish summer weather)

First is the quick charcoal sketch
