Whitstable Prints and Cards

All original oil on canvas paintings are listed on the page: Available Paintings- January 2024

Established land and seascape painter Ric W. Horner focuses in his work on the elemental qualities of light, the energy of weather and the drama of the sea. He creates highly atmospheric paintings that often feature coastal and harbour scenes in Kentish places such as Whitstable, Seasalter, Canterbury, Margate, Ramsgate and the views towards Faversham and the Isle of Sheppey. Below are: un-mounted prints on paper £ 25 – £ 40

Whitstable in particular is a quintessentially English seaside town in the Canterbury district, on the north coast of Kent adjoining the convergence of the Swale Estuary and the Greater Thames Estuary in south-eastern England, five miles north of Canterbury and two miles west of Herne Bay. It has been attracting visitors for centuries with its charm, beautiful scenery and cosy atmosphere.

Many of Ric’s original paintings that focus on this area were recently made into beautiful framed prints, which come in three different sizes (see selection below). You can purchase them online them directly from this website at the link: NEW! Large framed prints.

  • long 65 x 36cm – £ 130
  • rectangular 61 x 48cm – £ 145
  • square 61 x 61cm – £ 160

Artists Open Houses 2023

Ric works in a modern classical way and creates atmospheric, light-filled land and seascapes. The sublime light of his paintings is characteristic of a style called Luminism. He takes part every year in the East Kent Artist’s Open Houses (https://ekoh.org.uk/whitstable). If you’ve missed this event last October, get in touch to arrange a studio visit.

Canterbury Cathedral prints

He and his partner were in house 13 on the Whitstable trail. For directions go to:  https://ekoh.org.uk/…/65-joy-lane-sherrins-alley…/ There were are a lot of Kentish landscapes, large Whitstable beach scenes and stunning views of Canterbury Cathedral on show, which were all very well received.

However, he still has wonderful new range of smaller oil paintings, as well as high-quality greeting cards and prints available. They can be picked up directly from his studio on West Beach.

“…His mastery of sky, light and colour is breath taking!”

“Wow! My kind of art. Absolutely stunning. Love it!! Xx

“After seeing his work for the first time it completely changed the way I saw colour in nature, but especially the sky and dark clouds. This incredible oil on canvas captures a moment where the beautiful light and detail pulls you in, so you too are involved and immortalised in the moment.” 

 

The next one will be from October 2024 as part of the East Kent Artists Open Studios and the Canterbury Festival.
