This year I have been a regular visitor to Derek Jarman's home 'Prospect Cottage' and garden in Dungeness. Having battled with creating a coastal garden on a clifftop, I am familiar with a lot of the plants he has used and in awe at their survival in this exposed site. In the first instance I painted 'Prospect Cottage' from different viewpoints. This painting is the view from the back of the cottage and garden looking west. Wooden groins mark the boundaries and The Old Lighthouse stands proud with its black and white paint on the horizon.
