This painting is about Quin Abbey. In the village of Quin, Spring is the start of flowers coming into bloom and the birds out singing as they get ready for the year ahead. Quin abbey was founded in 1433 but it is really a Friary! The Friary closed in 1820 and site is now protected due to its historically and architectural beauty. This painting was completed on location in County Clare.
Cotton Rag Paper
The image comes with a 2 inch border for mounting into frame. The paper I use is 100% cotton with a textured surface. All the materials are acid free and I ensure that the techniques I use is based on archival methods, thereby enhancing the quality of the image.
The canvas print is rolled to protect the image integrity during posting. It is a semi glossy finish and comes with a 2 inch border for stretching. I personally write the title of the archival print and sign each one before it is packed.
I use only artist quality paints from artisan suppliers. I want to ensure that the art you buy will last a lifetime. The paper used is beautiful textured cotton heavy paper. This paper needs to be heavy to take the 30+ washes I use for building up depth and color in the watercolours. Each of the paintings are scanned and then printed onto cotton paper using archival inks. The print then is checked, so that the full color and texture is in line with fine art techniques.
