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 on a crisp winters day this hidden gem is a must. Thanks go to Mark Sayce for allowing us to use his stunning photo.

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.

What's the story?Richard had originally included a Sea Vixen in this painting, the reason being that the de Havilland Sea Vixen has a history with Christchurch construction wise.
