Into a Wicklow View
Reinder Ourensma painted five mysterious landscapes of the impressive Irish Wicklow countryside. They are on show at De Beeldenstorm – Art Gallery in Bosschenhoofd, Netherlands. A short animation shows the creation of one of these pieces.
The Wicklow Mountains are in the southeast of Ireland. They run roughly from Dublin through the Counties Wicklow, Wexford and Carlow to the south of Ireland. About 2800 hectares of reserved and protected nature: the National Park Wicklow Mountains. The Wicklows consist mainly out of granite and slate rocks, ancient vast bog and some spare woods. Several ribbon lakes are found on the east side in this area. An old and very famous road for walkers through this area is The Wicklow Way (127 km). Traditionally the Wicklow Way is walked from north to south, beginning at Marlay Park in south Dublin and ending in Clonegal, Co. Carlow.
