Artist's Description

Rye is a pretty little town built on a small hill on the Kent-Sussex border in Southern England. It hasn’t changed much over the centuries, but sadly most of the potteries it was renowned for have now gone. It is still one of the gems of the English South Coast though.

This view is looking up Mermaid Street towards the Mermaid Inn – a centuries old hostelry where just about anyone famous you’ve heard of has stayed. We settled for a pot of tea served on a silver platter in a room that oozed history from its ancient timber beams.

I painted this over about two weeks in oil on board measuring 12 inches wide by 24 inches high.
