What's the Story? - This is Richard's first painting of this beautiful Victorian arcade. The Grade II Listed structure with its symmetrical façades of red brick with stone dressings at either end and gothic style windows was of particular appeal to Rich. The glass roof, carried by wrought iron semi-circular ribs and encaustic floor tiles further enhance the cathedral-like appearance. A retailer in the arcade requested the painting which he then went onto sell in his shop, giving Richard the perfect excuse to paint it again from a different view.
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!
