Beachy Head Lighthouse

I am currently working on a painting of the Beachy Head lighthouse having seen an amazing shot on the tv beachy-head.

In 2011 Trinity house decided to allow the lighthouse to fade to a natural grey granite colour to save the cost of painting it. A campaign was started to fund a repaint and help preserve its much loved iconic red and white stripes, which was successful and the result is the amazing view of it that we now have. The current paint job is expected to last 10 years. I am painting the lighthouse with the tide out to show more of the coast. Hopefully it will be as stunning as this clip above.
