Kilcash Donkey

Fine Art Donkey Print

Peeking out from under his iconic ‘fringe’, this donkey conveys a sense of the friendliness, patience and playfulness that the breed are known for.

 

He seems interested, but not startled and his gentle gaze creates a connection and empathy with the viewer.

 

Flashes of bright, lemony white oil paint catch our attention.

 

These highlighted areas are contrasted with darker inky navy and burgundy tones bringing subtle depth and atmosphere to this insightful depiction.

The story behind...

Kilcash Donkey

I had fun capturing these ‘donkey’ characteristics such as the prominent ears and fluffy fringe.

This indigenous animal’s sensitive personality is represented by fresh, delicate mark-making and contrasting energetic ones.

This particular donkey is familiar to me.

Up to very recently, I would visit the tiny but beautiful village of Kilcash, (County Tipperary), while bringing my daughter to her traditional music lesson. Kilcash is perched on the slopes of Slievenamon Mountain.

As the road steepens and narrows approaching the village, two donkeys are always ready to greet us from their field along he roadside.

They are a predictable sight and one that my daughters (and I), looked forward to every week.

The happy reaction (from both daughters and donkeys) when they would spot each other will always be a special memory for me.

I hope to return to this subject matter soon and feature both donkeys next time!
