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. Each painting has a vintage aesthetic and evoke a sense of nostalgia. Signed fine art prints available in A4, A3 and A2 sizes.
What's The Story? - Travelling back from Devon we often stop at Beer for locally caught fish. These are the fishing boats that get winched up on to the beach after their work. The evening light is often superb as is the mackerel.
Free Postage - We say to allow up to 7 working days for delivery but it is usually quicker. Smaller prints are sent in recycled board backed envelopes and wrapped in cellobags that can be put in your recycling bin. A2 prints will be sent wrapped in acid free tissue paper and rolled in a cardboard tube.
Paper - All our fine art prints are printed at home on 315gsm 100% acid free textured cotton paper. We use a 12 colour injet printer with pigment based inks which create vibrant colours of superior archival quality and a print life of more than 85 years.
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, these all include an approximate 5mm white border -
