Artist's Description

This is the central picture of a triptych I’ve painted of the beach huts at Hengistbury Head. Its painted oil on board measuring 30 inches by 20 inches. As of 19/11/2015 its had 2500 views

Situated on a spit of sand at the entrance to Christchurch (Dorset, UK) harbour, these huts are not only picturesque, but very expensive to buy (typically selling for the price of a reasonable house).

Here’s a short verse to set the scene…

This string of huts meander down
a lazy stretch of land
bordered by the bay and sea
a backbone through the sand

Recorded here from summers past
in flaky sun bleached hues
the muted shades of endless days
of sun and seaside views

You can view the other two pictures in the triptych at:

And some individual huts from the same location at:

2014 update : I’ve recently revisited the scene, and the blue hut in the foreground has been replaced by a modern grey one with more glass frontage. So this is now a historic view!
2015 update : sold a print through redbubble. This is my best selling work elsewhere too.
