.Giant's Causeway, Co. Antrim - Archival Print
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.

The Giant's Causeway, situated on the rugged coastline of Co. Antrim Northern Ireland, is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic fissure eruption. It's fascinating interlocking columns attract visitors in enormous numbers and it was declared a World Heritage Site in 1986 by UNESCO, also named the fourth greatest natural wonder in the UK. Legend has it that Irish giant Fionn Mac Cumhaill built the causeway to meet and fight a Scottish giant Benandonner and the Giant's Causeway of today is what is left of it. The hexagonal and geometric shapes of the columns add mystery and magic to this fascinating wildlife-filled place.
