Original Contemporary Sussex Landscape Painting by Artist Diane Griffiths.
Acrylic and enamel on canvas with painted sides, 56x46cm / 22×18″ (2016).
The picturesque and enchanting Mermaid Street in one of the best preserved medieval towns called Rye in East Sussex; with ancient buildings, cobbled streets and secret passageways. Romance and drama is the order of the day here and you can see the famous Mermaid Inn sign sticking out on the right-hand sign. This inn was once the haunt of notorious smugglers; the Hawkhurst Gang, however today the scene is idyllic – portraying Rye in all its quintessential glory. The gentle colours lead you into this painting and tempt you to follow the path down to the bottom of the street.
