What's the story?
We have always loved the location of this 1830s observatory and folly, with its sweeping views over Kimmeridge Bay and in our younger days we would have made the climb up to photograph it. However for this painting Richard has used a photograph by Marc Sayce which saved us the climb!
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.
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!

A3 Prints - 29.7cm x 42cm will fit 'off the shelf' A3 frames, but check frame measurement first
50cm x 70cm Prints - 52cm x 72cm which includes a 2cm white border which can be altered if necessary to fit an 'off the shelf' frame
Calendars - These are A4 when folded, so easy to pop in the post as a pressie. Double A4 when opened and hanging.
