Pat Scott Paintings leave Ballymaloe for the IMMA, Dublin

The Deserted Race Course and Killiney Bay From A Railway Carriage are now included in the exhibition of Pat Scott's work at the IMMA in Dublin. This is the first time Killiney Bay has left Ballymaloe since Ivan Allen bought it from Pat Scott in the 60's. It is one of our favourites from the art collection at Ballymaloe House.

On a floured surface roll out the mixture until it is about 5mm thick. Cut shapes and place on a greased baking tray. Gather the remaining mixture, knead together again and roll out to cut more shapes. Repeat until all the mixture has been used up.
