paintings and fine art prints by Dorset artist Richard Watkin

Artist Richard Watkin paints the evocative locations and landscapes of Dorset from the beaches and towns of Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch to the dramatic Jurassic Coastline and picturesque Purbeck villages. He paints with acrylics in a bold graphical style and his travel print collection evokes a sense of nostalgia, a time when the pace of life was slower and the sun was always shinning. Original paintings and signed fine art prints available.

Our fine art prints are printed by us at Watkin Art Headquarters (our house) on 315gsm textured 100% cotton matt fine art paper with pigment based inks. Each hand signed print shows the imperfect texture of the linen canvas, the brush strokes, the highlights and lowlights - after all nothing in life is perfect and we prefer things that way!
