One of the familiar sign posts along the South Downs Way where the wonderful views over the Sussex Weald fade off into the horizon. / Late Summer flowers put on their final display of colour among the wild and windswept grass. (The view between Firle Beacon and Alfriston, East Sussex, UK) (Acrylic painting) • Buy this artwork on apparel, home decor, stationery, and more.
