All water water colour paintings, as well as framed prints can be found at the shop page: Shop | Ric W. Horner

Ric has spent many months over the years painting the view from his studio using Gouache, a water-medium paint consisting of natural pigment, water and thickened glue-like substance (gum binding agent) to achieve brilliant, vibrant colours that are lightfast, smooth and solid. Gouache is a French word, from the Latin root aquatio, “watering place” and simply means “watercolour”. The way it’s applied is by using a brush and watercolour paper. He likes this medium for it’s quick-drying, bold qualities and has produced over 30 pieces in recent months, many of them are about 35 x 20cm in size, including a protective mount.  Gouache generally dries to a value that differs from the one it has when wet (lighter tones generally dry darker and darker tones tend to dry lighter), which can make it difficult to match colours over multiple painting sessions. Its quick coverage and total hiding power mean that gouache lends itself to more direct painting techniques than watercolour. Many “en plein air” paintings take advantage of this, as do the works of J. M. W. Turner.

Salcombe, South Devon & the Cornish coast

The UK coastline is some of the most beautiful in Europe and has a huge number of sailing towns that range from rocky and scenic to stylish destinations known to visitors from around the world. You just can’t beat the rugged cliffs and lush green landscape of England, which is unofficially the ‘home of sailing’ and it has a long and glorious tradition of boat building and for rearing fine sailors.

Salcombe dusk

South Devon is more sedate and often warmer, sunnier than North Devon. It also gets lower rainfall. Salcombe in particular is known for its outstanding views, rolling surrounding countryside, breath-taking natural beauty, sparkling turquoise waters and rugged cliffs. It is a pretty coastal town with lovely spots for sailing traditional boats, or classic yachts. Salcombe was once a major port for the fruit trade and, over the years, has found fame as a safe haven for family holidays and visiting yachtsmen. It is situated at the southern end of the Salcombe Estuary; the estuary is, in fact, a ria which is a landlocked, salt water inlet, with stunning beaches.

Sailing around the UK will get you out of the crowded Solent and into waters further afield. This adventure involves open-ocean and much more offshore-orientated sailing, which may mean rougher weather and more challenging conditions. Ilfracombe in North Devon and Bardsey Island in North Wales for example are far more open to the elements as they catch the Atlantic ocean swells to a greater extent than places further South. This means bigger waves and longer and sandy beaches.

However, Ric has recently (spring 2024) created a new range of greeting cards of Salcombe, as well as of the Cornish and Welsh coastline. Below are all the various cards that cover these regions. You can also order a catalogue.
