Hamilton Sloan has been exhibiting successfully in major galleries throughout Ireland for the past 12 years. For most of this time, he has concentrated on watercolour landscapes and is much admired for the delicacy of touch with which these are executed.
He spent most of his life in Comber, Co. Down, but two years ago moved to Gweedore, Co. Donegal, to live. The wonderful scenery and superb lighting in Donegal has influenced his work, and during the past two seasons he has produced paintings in oils which capture the essence of the area --turf cutting, fishing and beach scenes being among the subjects he has captured with powerful authenticity. His paintings are in the collections of many of Ireland's best-known people, and he sells throughout Great Britain and America.
