“Where the mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea” – William Percy French

“It looks like the beginning of the world, somehow: the sea looks older than in other places, the hills and rocks strange, and formed differently from other rocks and hills…The hill-tops are shattered into a thousand cragged fantastical shapes. The savage rock-sides are painted of a hundred colours. Does the sun ever shine here? When the world was moulded and fashioned out of formless chaos, this must have been the bit over—a remnant of chaos!”

William Thackeray
The Irish Sketchbook of 1842

As a child, one of my favourite series of books were the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. Little did I know that many years later I would be living in the land upon which Lewis would chose to base his books on. Distinctive and striking, covered in cloud for most of the year, the Mourne Mountains are the inspiration for this magical painting. Covered in purple heather and sweeping down to the craggy coastline, it reminds me of wintery walks through the mist and rock formations.
