Their day was spent fossil hunting then after fish and chips on the beach...
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...
