THE HYDRO PAINTING
This is a privately commissioned painting of the St. Anne’s Hydropathic Centre & Turkish Baths (informally known as The Hydro) just outside Blarney, County Cork, Ireland. The facility is now completely in ruins, but during its heyday in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, its celebrated “water cure” for muscular and bronchial illnesses—not to mention the luxurious premises themselves—were internationally renowned. The facility boasted 80 bedrooms, and even had its own on-site farm and fish hatchery. This image was created digitally in Photoshop over the space of several months, using some historical and recent photographs of the buildings themselves as reference. The final product will be an approx. 5X3 foot canvas print. You can check out the painting in more detail on my Béhance gallery: https://www.behance.net/gallery/18691941/The-Hydro
