Beachy Head

Beachy Head oil painting

Beachy Head. Oil on French linen. 10in x 8in.

This was my first visit to Beachy Head, on the Sussex Downs, and I was astonished by its beauty. From the top you can see for miles in every direction. The day I went was a hot summer's day and the bright sunlight accentuated all the colours: the deep blue of the sea, turquoise pools at the foot of the majestic white cliffs and the summer green of the surrounding farmland.
