My Favourite Place to Read 12×16 inch mounted watercolour painting

Who wouldn’t want to curl up on this sofa and read a great book. Hang this near your favourite reading spot at home and give yourself permission to sit back and unwind with a book and a cup of tea. Perfect.

Hatchards is the oldest Bookshop in London situated on Piccadilly, one of the most famous streets in the world.

Have you sat here and read a book? It has to be one of the best places to read in London. This series of paintings has been made into a range of greetings cards now sold in Hatchards itself. I am told this is the customer's favourite card, I wonder if it because it is the place they connect with personally? A place where they sit and love to read, in the quiet of the store, with the buzz of London just the other side of the glass.

Hatchards was established in 1797 and holds the Royal Warrant, supplying books to the Royal family. Book lovers across generations have found treasures in this building and sought sanctuary here, with a book, in a corner somewhere, escaping from the world outside.

The highest quality materials have been used for this painting. Watercolour paper made at St Cuthbert's Mill, Somerset and Daniel Smith watercolour paints.

It is mounted in a soft white double mount, ready to fit a 12 x 16 inch frame. The image size is approximately 12 x 9 inches. I have these mounts custom-made to fit each painting (or set of paintings) by my framer as they are such good quality and finish the painting perfectly.
