.Mizen Head, Co. Cork - 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.

Mizen Head is a spellbinding place located in Ireland's most southwesterly point in Co. Cork. It is home to a signal station to save lives off its wild and rocky shoreline and Ireland's first radio beacon was installed there in 1931. If you're lucky you can spot hump backed whales from it's awe inspiring viewpoints.
