Excited to Unveil Whitstable’s “The Street” Today, August 5th At 2pm

I’ve painted many watercolours of beautiful Kent and Sussex coastal and inland settings, and was recently commissioned by my friend Allen Hartley, owner of Whitstable Art Cage, to paint “The Street”, depicting Whitstable’s iconic beach front from a new angle.

I’ll be unveiling the final painting today, Thursday 5th August at the Whitstable Art Cage. Come along to Hut 2, Whitstable Harbour Market at 2PM!

I’m obviously no stranger to Whitstable, having previously painted Whitstable’s pier for the Art Cage, but you never get tired of Whitstable!

It’s such a special and interesting place, as it combines an attractive working harbour with a great coastline and a thriving town. It’s always been a favourite of mine and is a very popular destination with its iconic beach huts.

The original painting of The Street will be available from August 5th for £895 (unless sold prior) with prints (landscape format) measuring:
37.62 x 19.92cm @ £95, 
51 x 27cm @ £155
75.81 x 40.14cm @ £225

Allen Hartley, owner of Whitstable Art Cage at the Whitstable Harbour Market said: “Nigel has been a friend for a long time and his prints (all of which are available at “The Cage”) are hugely popular with locals and visitors alike. I expect this one to be no different and am really excited to see the final result.”

For media and customer enquiries about prints and the original please contact Allen: 07787 656037 or email whitstableartcage@gmail.com.

The most satisfying part of painting for me is always the sky. It is the first part of the painting process after the initial drawing and it always feels great to start getting colour down on the paper or canvas. But I’m also very aware that it’s the sky that could make or break the painting.
