What's the story? Featuring the Cathedral is an obvious choice for a painting of Salisbury, it has the tallest spire in Britain and the best preserved original 1215 Magna Carta manuscript. Less obvious is the Spitfire, however in 1940 the town became a major centre for manufacturing Spitfires, hidden in sheds, garages, back gardens, a bus depot and a hotel.

Richard wanted a splash of red so included a MGTC which was first manufactured as soon as the war was over.

What's the Story? - Richard couldn't help revisiting Weymouth Harbour with his paint brush. The colours, the form, the subject matter are really suited to his style of painting. The historic buildings on the harbour side give this view a timeless quality and it's no surprise that Weymouth Bay was once known as...
