So many amazing beaches to walk and be inspired by:
Compton Bay natural and free - no breakwaters or sea defences to tame its wildness and with the gleaming white chalk cliffs of Highdown away across the bay is just three miles from my studio.
Totland Bay a rich source of inspiration, facing west across the Solent, it is an evening place; a place for sunsets.
Fort Victoria, blue clay and coarse shingle, dangerous for swimming but with its own bleak beauty.
Brook Shore where dinosaurs once walked and time stretches out in all directions
