The Long Walk - Galway Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.

The subject of this Galway canvas print is the beautiful waterfront area known as The Long Walk. I've read various explanations for this name and none of them seem to be related to the length of the waterfront. Some seem to think it's a corruption of an Irish word into English. Others think it's related to the history of Spanish traders in Galway. So again, probably a word or phrase in another language. Whatever it's name may mean, it's a beautiful place that I returned to again and again during my stay in Galway. I loved sight of those colorful houses lining the seaside.

This panoramic view of the harbor area is among my most popular Galway canvas art prints. I think it captures the spirit and beauty of Galway. And certainly this view of The Long Walk is familiar to most anyone who has visited Galway - never mind lived there. Even though I only visited, I felt a kinship with this place that makes these prints extra special to me.

Canvas Prints - Product Information

Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.

After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.

When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.

Canvas Print Detail Sample

There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.

After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
