Skellig Michael, Co. Kerry
Skellig Michael rock 8 miles off the coast of Portmagee in south west Kerry, rises majestically from the sea towering 218m above sea level and is both distinctive and dramatic. On it's summit is a well preserved 6th century monastic settlement. The island can be visited by boat ferry and was made even more famous world wide by it's being used as a location for the Star Wars movie The Last Jedi.
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.
