Wight Bear Fine Art Travel Print
Fine art print of the original painting of The Wight Bear, Isle of Wight. 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? - We have lived in Dorset for nearly 40 years and spent many summers sitting on Southbourne beach when the kids were small. And yet we had never noticed the Wight Bear until it was pointed out to us when asking for suggestions for a painting. This iconic view of the Isle of Wight is visible from the beach and the Polar Bear is an optical illusion in the chalk cliffs, best viewed when directly lit by the afternoon sun.
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!
