Print size : 16x11 inches approx
The first oil I attempted in 2008 after not doing any painting of any description for many years. I was told to use Old Holland oils by someone who knows. Marvellous paints. Large brush on the sky and palette knife and a few touches with a Sable brush on the boat side.
Original Painting 910x660mm
The prints are superior quality from the paintings that Richard has produced since 2006. The influence of a lifetime retouching photographs and airbrush illustrations has resulted in him painting in a photo realistic style, but are unmistakably oil paintings. The paintings are photographed in daylight conditions,using an SLR digital camera, the images are printed onto FibaPrint White Semi-Matte 300gsm Photo paper using Epson Lightfast inks with a guaranteed 50 year life in natural conditions, i.e. away from direct sunlight and harsh interior lighting. The images are centred on 19x13 inch paper with an approximate 1 inch border both sides allowing the image maximum use of the paper. The Editions are limited to 200, signed and numbered with authentication supplied.
This collection will be added to in the future as new paintings are completed.
