Portland Bill Lighthouse - Isle of Portland Canvas Print
This Isle of Portland canvas print features the Portland Bill lighthouse. The choppy waters of the English Channel fill the scene along with skies that suggest a storm has recently passed. Construction was begun on the lighthouse in 1903 and completed in 1906. It's still in use as an aid to navigation today but was automated in the 1990's. Today this beautiful old lighthouse is also one of the main attractions of a visit to the Isle of Portland.
For many of us Lighthouses capture the imagination. There's a certain nostalgia and romanticism that has built up around them. For many there's also as well a lot of symbolism attached to lighthouses for being a guidepost in the storm. And of course, many surviving lighthouses are simply historic in nature. For me, it's a little bit of all of the above that attracts me to them as subjects for art. And of course, the seaside landscapes where one finds lighthouses is usually beautiful in its own right. Which as you can see from this artwork, is certainly the case here.
And I think this Portland Bill lighthouse canvas art will catch the eye of many lighthouse aficionados out there. Whether you've visited the Isle of Portland or not, it's simply an amazing scenic landscape on top of the lighthouse itself. If you have visited Portland Bill Lighthouse or have ties to it, I bet this artwork is even more captivating.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
