Swanage Fine Art Travel Print


Fine art print of the original painting of Swanage. Part of the travel print collection by Dorset artist Richard Watkin. Printed on quality 315gsm textured cotton paper available in A4, A3 and A2 sizes which fit 'off the shelf' frames. All the prints are signed by the artist. 

What's the story? - People have been asking Richard to do a painting of Swanage for sometime now. We took the steam train from Corfe station one summers day and  decided the focus of the painting was going to be Wellington Clock Tower. The light in his photos weren't quite right so after a bit of internet searching he found the perfect shot taken by Richard Holway, a keen walker in this area, who kindly gave Richard the permission to use the shot. Rich still managed to get cars into the painting - look closely enough and you will see three VW vans on the quayside, 1 red, 1 blue, 1 yellow.

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!

Free Postage - We say to allow up to 7 working days for delivery but it is usually quicker.
