What's the story? - Everybody living in or around the Poole, Bournemouth area (and a few visitors) must have used the Sandbanks Ferry for a day trip to Swanage. Our kids used to love it and always insisted on getting out of the car to go on the 'top deck'. A major feat when they were little as by the time we got there the ferry had reached the other side! On deck is a little Morris Minor Convertible, another favourite of Richard's.
Prints and Posters - The prints are created from Richard's original painting, we print them ourselves using a method known as Giclėe, the paper is 100% cotton with a gentle texture. A4 and A3 prints will arrive cello wrapped with a recycled cardboard backing ready for framing. A2 prints will be send rolled in a cardboard tube. Richard signs all prints.

Giclée Printing - this involves squirting or spraying microscopic dots of pigment based-inks onto high quality art paper (not as messy as it sounds!). The print is colour corrected to attain the closest possible match to the original artwork and will keep its vibrant colours for many years to come.
Paper - we use a natural soft textured bright white matt 315gsm paper for all prints. The paper's bright white base and gentle texture delivers a quality print with a wide colour gamut, it's 100% acid free and accredited by the Fine Art Trade Guild as being of archival quality.
Free delivery on all prints - We send the prints via myHermes or Royal Mail so you will be able to track your order and we will know they have been delivered safely!
