Dubliner Touts Teeling

The Dubliner Magazine Praises Artist

The Dubliner Review in The Dubliner written by Anne Iremonger for the Capital/Art section

“Norman Teeling takes us gently back into middle-class Edwardiana. His Interiors are lush, rich and romantic, full of nostalgia for the leisured life of wealthy suburbanites; all of which belies the fact that he was born in 1944. He is probably best known for his historic paintings of the 1916 Rising, on permanent display in the GPO. Here is the other side of that coin – the priviledged classes leading la dolce vita: afternoon tea on a sunlit lawn, parasols and bonnets, parlourmaids and gentility. Painting in traditional oils on canvas board, Teeling offers us warmth and sunlight, deep couches and comfy cushions and lushly-furnished interiors suffesed in firelight. Fine antique furniture rests under layers of polish and overstuffed upholstery promises comfort. In these paintings we find security and escapism from the harsh realities of life. The tranquility of the inter-war Edwardian period offers us respite from our own 21st century angst.”

Step–By–Step Demonstrations

Each of nine separate demonstrations helps the reader visualise the steps they will take to create their own En Plein Air artworks.

Demonstration No. 5
'Doneen Haven'
Letterfrack Harbour

  1. Figure 1

    Step 1
    Map in the scene very roughly. Indicating the large areas i.e. sky hills and foreground. Think in an abstract way, looking for the bigger or simple relationships of value and colour. I used a rag to wipe out the water area.

  2. Figure 2
    Step 2

    Simply indicate the distant hills and loosely place in the boats and harbour. Foreground: Venetian Red, Boats Cadmium Red, Hills Viridian, sky mixture of Cerulean Blue and Raw Umber.

  3. Figure 3
    Step 3

    'mass in' the larger shapes using thick paint. Try to work all over the canvas by filling in the big 'slabs' of colour avoiding too much detail at this stage. I used Cadmium Violet for main hill and Cerulean Blue for water.

  4. Figure 4
    Step 4

    Model and work colours towards the edges of the shapes (i.e. harbour to boats.) Refine and continue to define by sharpening edges around boats and softening background (sky, hills, etc. use more saturated colour, contrast or detail in main area.
