VINTAGE INSPIRED PAINTINGS, PRINTS, POSTERS

Dorset artist Richard Watkin paints original vintage inspired locations reminiscent of travel posters of the 1930's with some 50s influences. His paintings often include classic cars and have a retro art deco feel. All of Richard's paintings are available as high quality prints and posters on fine art paper, which will keep their vibrant colours for many years to come.  So what makes WatkinArt different from other artists creating vintage style prints? Well - all our prints are created from Richard's original paintings and not computer generated, this means that not every line is perfectly straight, the colours are vibrant and earthy and each painting is unique with around 50 to 60 hrs of blood, sweat and tears put into each and everyone of them!  We print ourselves because we don’t want our images photoshopped to perfection, we like to see the imperfect textured effect of the canvas, the brush strokes, the highlights and lowlights - after all nothing in life is perfect and we prefer things that way!

Measurments

We have taken into consideration that you may not want to go to the expense of having your prints professionally framed (although they do look great when they are!) so have kept to standard sizes -

A4 Prints - 21cm x 29.7cm will fit 'off the shelf' A4 frames

A3 Prints - 29.7cm x 42cm will fit 'off the shelf' A3 frames, but check frame measurement first

50cm x 70cm Prints - which includes a small white border, will fit 'off the shelf' 50cm x 70cm frames

A6 Postcards - 148mm x 105mm will fit off the shelf frames if required

Calendars - These are A4 when folded, so easy to pop in the post as a pressie. Double A4 when opened and hanging
