Under the Mountains of Mayo

Letita Hamilton

b. 1878 - d. 1964
Oil on panel

This freely painted, realistic landscape depicts a traditional thatched cottage, with tall hay sheds behind and, further back, the imposing mountains. Hamilton uses white in abundance, allowing light to bounce throughout the painting in a watercolour technique.
