In this print from one of my original paintings I tried to capture the occasional glorious summer weather you can get, but not always rely on, in west Cork. The setting is Glandore harbour/bay which is about twenty minutes drive east of Skibbereen. It is a beautiful Irish seaside village and the waters around it and filled with various kinds of boats from yachts to small fishing vessels moored around in a seemingly random fashion. The local west Cork area has a great distinctive character with plenty to explore and do, just book early if you plan to go there on holiday.
I made this print by creating it first as an watercolour painting, I then carefully photographed it and brought that into my iMac and did a little more work on it in photoshop to get the colour balance right.
When you buy one of these prints I send the file to an artisan printers like the Copper House in Dublin and they produce an A2 glicee print which is acid free knotted paper similar to the paper used for dry point etching. I then sign and mail off the print to the client.
