I’ve been asked to do a thing, a big thing – I’ve been asked to produce four landscape paintings for the 2019 Horsham District Year of Culture (HDYoC). Sounds quite simple and not at all big when put like that but there’s more to it; it involves meeting people, workshops, visiting places, lots of talking, walking and exhibiting. You can read all about the project and what it involves here… http://sduffieldart.co.uk/section859169_359071.html
So far… I have received lots of nominations for places people would like me to paint. I’ve had a map made (it’s got my photo on it) and I’ve covered it in sticky arrows and notes. I’ve visited lots of places, I’ve walked a lot, met a lot of lovely people who have helped me find lovely spots and with the help of the #HDYoC team four views have been chosen.
1. The View from Beeding Hill – Great spot for sunsets; you can see Bramber castle, the river Adur and Chanctonbury from here. I’ve walked up the hill a number of times now (easy to do as its near where I live) the view is breath taking, the hill is steep and sometimes there are cows at the top which mean rather than a circular walk round back to my house I have to turn round and walk back down again because cows are scary.
