Smarden, Kent

Painting Description

This painting, I hope, shows many of the elements that draw us back to England again and again. This small village in Kent, “The garden of England”, demonstrates the attractive massing of slightly wonky buildings that provide a setting for the profusion of garden colour and the activity of village life. In the background, the church embraces the entire scene. I think that this sense of community that shows so strongly in small English villages is hugely appealing and most reassuring.
