The Bottleneck, Lewes

This is the second of a series of paintings I've made of Lewes in Sussex, the town where I was born. My parents owned a sweet shop on the left hand side of the painting just before the 15 Century bookshop, which is the timber framed building. I tried to capture the vibrancy and brilliance I remembered as a child and which still exists now. A busy, bustling county town.
