Cuckmere Haven Valley

The route of the  bus bus no.12  goes from Eastbourne to Brighton. It goes through one of the most scenic places in the UK. The Cuckmere Valley. Suddenly Past Friston from the top of the hill this commanding view is revealed.  This scenic landscape looks down onto the valley where the Cuckmere river meanders in large bends before it reaches the sea. In the distance you can spot the famous Coastguard Cottages with the backdrop of Seaford Head Natural Reserve.

The Cuckmere Valley and Cuckmere Haven has inspired artists such as Eric Ravilious, John Piper and Erik Slater. They are also a cultural spot with the annual Artwave festival, the Lapwing Music Festival.

Coastguard Cottages SOS

Recently big storms and lack of government funding have led to destruction of the existing sea defences adjacent to the cottages. This has left the landscape and coastguard cottages vulnerable to the elements. There is an appeal to save them for future generations. You can read about it in this link.

Inspection of art print at studio
Photograph of the base drawings for the art print. I draw these on A3 sheets of specialised marker paper with calligraphic brushes, fine-line ink pens, sponges, sand paper and other materials. The medium is watercolour, ink and charcoal. I scanned these to form the main line work and patterns in the final print.
