This is at West Wittering in Sussex at the entrance to Chichester Harbour. I was struck by the darkness of the water compared to the sand.
I’ve holidayed at West Wittering since I was a child, and I keep getting drawn back to its massive skies and wide-open beaches. The stark contrasts in this vivid oil study by Michael Jules Lang of the grey sky (I remember many of those), the darkening water, and the sodden colour of the sandy beach attracted me. I particularly like the spontaneity and immediacy of Lang’s brushwork.Lewis McNaught, Mall Galleries' Director
