Kemptown Brighton Promenade Ocean Blue
‘Kemptown Brighton Promenade Ocean Blue’.
Panoramic format. Print size 124 x 30.5 cm approx. Signed print from a limited edition of 100. From original ink drawing to which I apply colour digitally. Printed on fine art paper using archival inks.
View of Hove and Brighton from the raised cliff of Kemptown at Marine Parade with its typical bow fronted terraced houses; Chinese style street lamps; Victorian lift; the unmissable 1960’s Sussex Heights and our contemporary British airways I-360; the historic Brighton Palace Pier and in the distance the coastline that runs from Shoreham Scottish Power Thermal Station; the two wind turbines; Shoreham industrial Harbour and continuing all the way to Worthing Pier.
This print belongs to a tonal collection named ‘Ocean Blue’. It reflects the aquamarine colours of the sea I encountered one summer day walking on the Palace Pier in Brighton with the ‘Big Blue’ underneath my feet glistening through the cracks between the planks of the wooden deck. And later lounging on a deck chair watching the English Channel framed in the horizon by the white lattice of Victorian wrought iron railings.
