I would not have painted Eastbourne like this, other than I had a client commission me to do another painting of it two or three years ago. I was impressed by how insistent they were that I included all the little spots that were part of their life such as the green grocer and the medical centre. It is a reminder of how people are looking for their everyday stories in these paintings. I struggled to get images I could work from for the hills and ranges, as from the town the hills seem small, and from the other side of the harbour you just see the mountainous ranges all hazy and dwarfing the township. Eventually I got my brother to take me out on his boat one summer evening to get the perspective I needed.
