Sarre Mill

I have just finished this studio panel of Sarre Mill. Called 'Winter Clouds over Sarre Mill' it is 12" x 16" oil on board.
I painted this after a visit with my friend Matthew Alexander. We had been painting at Broadstairs Harbour for the morning and after that I went and studied the Mill and just knew I had to paint it. I never had the time until recently to draw the composition. Now it is finished I am planning other Mill sites further afield, such as Cley in North Norfolk.
I enjoyed this image as it was deep in colour and rich in the light of the setting sun. I had to inject a little license, but no one will ever know. I do not know the history of Sarre Mill, but it is a restored beauty and a credit to all those who maintain this piece of English heritage so magnificently.  Sarre Mill was built in 1820 and is one of England's few remaining commercially worked mills.

As always leave your thoughts and comments below. I hope you like this painting. It, along with all my other paintings are up for sale and can be found on my website galleries, or just make contact with me to check on the availability of this or any other works offered.
Best wishes Paul
