What's the Story? - After a visit to Portland when the winter sunshine cast unusual shadows Richard decided to paint a more dreamlike, stylized version of the Portland Bill Lighthouse. The painting uses tones of soft pink for the clouds with glowing white borders. Blues are used for shadows instead of a more usual grey, the overall impression has an idyllic, fanciful, retro quality.

Artist Richard Watkin paints with acrylics in a simple graphical style, his latest nostalgic retro collection demonstrates his love of 1930s and 1940s style and features locations, architecture and retro transport, some real, some imagined creating a stylized, idyllic aesthetic.
