Devil’s Dyke

A move to Brighton in June 2015 and an introduction to the South Downs National Park and the experience of landscape painting. A painting journey out of the enclosed spaces of London woods to distant vistas and birds eye views. The popular vantage point of Devil’s Dyke, once the destination of Victorian day trippers with its own train link to Brighton, has the longest, widest and deepest dry chalk valley in the country and, according to John Constable, ‘the grandest view in the world’. Now the place for rambling, skydiving, quiet picnics and flying kites.
