Patrick McGovern is an exciting new Historical Irish artist who works with the medium of paint and predominantly in watercolour and acrylic in a mixed media format.
He uses a limited earth biased palette which he considers to be classic and expressively emotional, avoiding the brightness of primary colour's which can interfere with the tonality of a piece. He is proudly self taught having developed a unique style blending realism and realistic impressionism, with visible sketch lines and brushstrokes showing allowing each piece a naive painterly feel remaining simple in its completion.
"Because I am self taught I am not bound by any limits or idealists other than what my imagination can see and what my hands can produce. I use it as an opportunity to explore the range of possibilities allowed through different methods of application so will use what ever medium or expressive brush stroke I need to achieve this."
