Contemporary oil on canvas by British artist, Ben Fenton.

The sweeping curve of Winchelsea draws the eye to the centre of this mesmerising painting. The undulating shoreline is a patchwork of muted plum and grape. The slightest murmur of blue bell along the edges of the forms. That glorious thick swadge of cream where the sand meets the sea. We particularly love the simplicity of the broad sky and the distant headland. Richly painted with structure and restraint.

Fenton at his best.

Fenton grew up listening to the sound of shingle dragged by the tide and the intermittent sweep of the Dungeness lighthouse beaming through the pink curtains of his grandmother's beach shack, Prospect Cottage. Having been put to sea at the age of four by his fisherman father he is well equipped to paint the weight of uninterrupted skies, beach structures and architecture.
