What's the story? - In June 2015 we took part in the Shake and Stir Vintage Festival a fantastic event organised by the locals of Southbourne. At the time Richard hadn't painted Southbourne-on-Sea so we asked our customers what they wanted. Ideas ranged from the bandstand to the 'polar bear' in the cliffs to Fisherman's walk funicular railway. Richard took some photos and we decided the railway was the iconic feature, he added some cyclist on the prom and Southbourne-on-Sea was born!
Prints and Posters - The prints 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. A4 and A3 prints will arrive cello wrapped with a recycled cardboard backing ready for framing. A2 prints will be send rolled in a 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? - Poundbury, near Dorchester, is a bit of a marmite town. As an artist Richard was attracted by the Georgian style architecture and decided to focus his painting on Queen Mother Square with it's impressive facades. The focal point is the cast bronze statue of the late Queen Mother,...

What's the Story? - This is one of the final paintings for the Jurassic Coast collection. Not many people attempt the arduous walk from either Lulworth Cove or Tyneham to Mupe Bay and Flowers Barrow and we have to confess we didn't make it! Instead Richards inspiration was a photograph by Mark...
