What's the Story?
- An off chance visit to Mudeford Spit was the basis of this painting when Richard took some photos of a boat cruising down the River Stour. Rich did a lot of sailing when he was a teacher but never had the opportunity to sail a Scow, the boat originated in the 1920s as a sailing tender for larger cruising yachts, but over the years, has become popular as a single-handed sheltered water racing dinghy. He decided to place a mystery lady at the helm taking in the harbour views and paint the sail red to draw the eye into the painting.

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. He paints with acrylics in a bold graphical style, his travel print collection evokes a sense of nostalgia, a time when the pace of life was slower and the sun was always shinning!
