.Loop Head, Co. Clare - 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.
Printed on beautiful archival slightly textured watercolour paper with archival pigment inks which ensures your lovely print will last a lifetime. This paper is especially made for art prints and it is difficult to tell the print from the original painted work.

Loop Head peninsula in the Wild Atlantic Way is situated at the western tip of County Clare, where the calm waters of the Shannon Estuary turn into the powerful waves of the Atlantic. At the western end of the peninsula stands its lighthouse which from its top holds views that stretch from County Kerry to the Cliffs of Moher. An area famous for its wildlife with thousands of seabirds nesting on rock ledges and well over 100 bottlenose dolphins living in the mouth of the Shannon River.
