What's the story? - This spot overlooking Durdle Door is without a doubt one of the all time favourites for the Watkin family. We have visited this particular stretch of the Jurassic coastline many times in the past 30 years and our daughter was proposed to not far from this spot. Trying to get that blustery feeling on the grasses as the wind passes through was a bit of a challenge but Richard was happy with the finished painting.
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!
What's the story? We visited Durlston Country Park, Swanage on a cold March day just after the birth of our first grandchild. Having taken lots of shots Richard decided the view of the Great Globe with the top of the Castle in the background made the best composition. Constructed in Greenwich...
What's the Story? West Bay is a particular favourite of ours. Richard was keen to do another painting of this dramatic Jurassic coastline as the profile of the area seems to change every time we visit due to cliff erosion. Rich has used his favourite yellow ochre to capture the cliffs in all their glory,...
What's the story? When the children were small we often visited the park at Fordingbridge, the kids loved paddling in the pool and playing on the swings whilst us Mums tried to protect them from the rather ferocious resident swan! The painting depicts the view of the River Avon looking across...
What's the story? - Having walked to Worbarrow Bay (Isle of Purbeck) from the deserted Tyneham Village on many occasions Richard decided it was time to do a painting. He was drawn to the contrast between the clear azure blue of the bay and the lush greens of the grasses. Best visited...
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 - 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.
