It is unusual for this time of year in England to get such a prolonged patch of dry sunny weather. Its been a delight to keep going out with my sketching equipment and to spend an hour or so sitting outside drawing the lovely views around East Sussex.
Here is St Mary’s church at a tiny village called Tarring Neville, nestled into a fold in the South Downs (a range of hills on the South Coast of England)
And then another one painted on a gap in the hills overlooking the sea at Birling Gap
I painted this first one on the cliff-tops at Eastbourne, our nearest large town. At first I find myself a little embarrassed to be sketching alone perched on a my tripod seat but within no time at all I am so absorbed by the drawing that I don’t notice anyone passing by.
Finally, here’s one from the church at Bishopstone village, about a couple of miles from home.
