Beachy Head in Sussex

Beachy Head Lighthouse

Beachy Head, Sussex
2010, oil on canvas
50x40cm

Looking down from Beachy Head in Sussex, you can see the Beachy Head Lighthouse. The waves seem to circulate around the lighthouse, and as you look down on it, it seems to lean over – I liked this effect, so I exaggerated it.

While doing this painting I found I was enjoying painting the sea a lot more than the land, so my next two paintings were to mostly contain sea and sky.
