Wilton Wiltshire with Fordson Van

Size Guide

What's the story? On a trip to Wilton to get some inspiration for a new painting. We were rather taken aback to discover an Italianate Church, a slice of Italy in the middle of Wilton! The architecture was amazing and perfect for a painting. Back in the studio Richard settled on a Fordson 8 Van, the colour was perfect and it had a rather comforting, friendly and familiar feel about it. In fact the familiarity was so strong that it brought back a long forgotten memory of Richard’s Dad having the exact van in the 1950’s with a clip-on sign on the side advertising the families toy shop. The sign now takes pride of place in our kitchen. We contacted the owner of the image who had restored the van about 10 years ago and he gave Richard permission to use it.

Prints and Posters - These 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. Your A4 or A3 print will arrive cello wrapped with a recycled cardboard backing ready for framing. The 50cm x 70cm print will arrive rolled in a large 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.
