Fanad Head, Co. Donegal, Ireland
Hand painted in gouache which is an opaque watercolour, these illustrations are inspired by my own happy childhood memories of road trips around this beautiful island with my family in the late 60's and 70's (I'm a fine vintage). And yes, we drove a VW minibus and you'll see one or two popping up in this collection.
They are printed on beautiful archival watercolour paper with archival pigment inks thus ensuring your lovely print will last a lifetime and the vibrant colours will not fade. The paper is especially made for art prints and it is difficult to tell the print from the original painted work. Each print is also signed by me.
A4 prints are packaged flat with love and care in a clear plastic sleeve with board and mailed in a hard back envelope. A3 prints are shipped in a sturdy cardboard tube to ensure their safe arrival.
Our frames are bespoke white wooden frames handmade in Greystones, Co. Wicklow.
A4 print measures 8.25" x 11.5" (21cm x 29cm); A3 print measures 11.69" x 16.53" (29.7cm x 42 cm).
Fanad Head is situated on the north coast of Donegal and is one of the most awe inspiring locations on the Irish Atlantic coastline. It's lighthouse has been voted one of the world's most beautiful, the nearby Portsalon beach and Ballymastocker Bay was also once voted the second most beautiful in the world by the Observer. Steeped in history, the famous Flight of the Earls took place here in 1607.
