Across The Water – Bridget Flinn

Like many of us, Bridget Flinn frequently crossed the East Link Bridge, without ever noticing the lighthouse on the north side of the river.

But, on an Autumn day, when she joined DPSC painters, at the Poolbeg Yacht Club, the black and white lighthouse could not be ignored.

Bridget describes the work… “Initially I did quick sketches in charcoal and acrylic. Later, in the studio, I made a bigger painting, featuring the lighthouse in its surroundings… However, to get a good composition, some artistic licence was taken with the buildings.”

The finished painting perfectly conveys the mood of Dublin Port during the many sunless days of its long history.
