What's the Story? - Richard had a large collection of WW2 aircraft as a boy and the Spitfire was one of his favourites. The MK1 Spitfire featured in the painting was part of the Battle of Britain Flight during the 2018 Bournemouth Air Show. Sadly we weren't there to see it, so in true Boy Scout style Richard built an Airfix model and used a recent photograph of Bournemouth Pier for the composition.

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.
