Limited edition print of a painting of The Ship Inn, Lymington


45cm x 22cm image size not including the white boarder paper. More details below.

A while back I was asked to paint a double commission of Lymington in Hampshire. I had an enjoyable visit and it all seemed to go well, so I was more than happy to receive an email from another client asking me to paint The Ship Inn on the quayside.

The Ship Inn is a lovely pub with fine views and decent food and beers. I don’t know much about its history though it looks as though it has been added to over the years. The newest part looks to be the seating area by the quayside. A fine place for alfresco eating, as long as the rather temperamental winds from The Solent are behaving themselves.

I decided I wanted to show a bit of hustle and bustle, depicting both the visitors, the local fisherman pulling in the crab and the lobster pots in front of The Ship Inn.

material, not really used since classical times. The structure out front is Arthur Wellesley The Duke of Wellington. It was placed there in 1844 and is made from the captured bronze cannon from Wellingtons continental campaigns.

A bit about Lymington

A settlement has been here, tucked away on the banks of the river Lymington, since the 6th Century and inhabited ever since. It was listed as “Lentune” in the Doomsday book of 1086, and the village has survived through fishing, ship building, salt making and even, at one point, as an army garrison . It seems Lymington has responded to the changing times rather well over the last 1,400 hundred years.

Lymington has slowly grown into a small town of 9,300, and these days it’s one of the south coast’s yachting centres, so also very popular with tourists. During the summer months it’s packed, with those that aren’t sailing watching those that are, while often catching crabs from the quay with bits of bacon and string.

What is a Giclee Print?

Giclee is a very high quality print process used by galleries and artists for exclusive limited editions. This Giclee process uses 12 true pigment artist colours (ultra marine, ochre etc) rather than the standard four dye colours in normal printing, so Giclee delivers greater depth in colour, tonal values and no yellowing over time.
