Clayton Windmills West Sussex - Landscape Painting by Chichester Artist Glen Smith

Clayton Windmills, West Sussex

Some years ago, friends of mine were moving house, relocating north and wanting a lasting reminder of their old home in Mid-Sussex. I was very happy to be commissioned to paint these famous Sussex landmarks, locally known as Jack & Jill Windmills
which overlook the village of Clayton and the Sussex Weald.

I opted to visit the site on the South Downs in the early spring with my camera on a bright clear day and set out to capture the exposed nature of the hillside, with its bare trees and flowering gorse bordering the fields. The resulting photos were then used as a basis for the painting which now takes pride of place in their home.

About The Artist

A self taught artist, Glen has painted and drawn from an early age. He has gained inspiration from the natural landscape; wide open spaces, coast, moorlands and the Downs. Glen enjoys sketching and painting places which he visited as a child and more recently with his own family.

Working mainly in acrylics, Glen seeks to capture atmosphere, mood and light in his paintings. His style is meticulously detailed and this is achieved through a combination of accurate drawing skills, followed by overpainting using pallet knife work and base colours to influence the layers above.

About The Artist

I am a self-taught artist, painting for over10 years. I enjoy working in both watercolour, and more recently, acrylics. I tend, being primarily a watercolour artist, to use similar techniques when painting in acrylics and enjoy the boldness of their colours and the vibrancy they produce. I have no formal artistic training, but merely took up the brush when diagnosed with an illness which incapacitated me for a time. I enjoy painting local scenes in watercolour, but most of my acrylics come from the brush itself.

About The Artist

I'm a Pastel Landscape Artist based in Ashdown Forest (between East Grinstead and Uckfield) in East Sussex. I specialise in views of Ashdown Forest and the wider Sussex countryside and have been producing art and picture framing, for the last 20 years.

Despite my Yorkshire roots (and occasional Northern outbursts), I have now lived in Nutley in the picturesque Ashdown Forest for the last 27 years – still not quite a local!

Ashdown Forest has always been special to me and I strongly suspect I would not have been an artist at all if it wasn’t for the inspiring subject matter right on my doorstep. Even on the gloomiest of days, there is artistic treasure out there waiting to be discovered.

Art is a pursuit I never expected to follow. I had previously trained as a bilingual secretary and worked in the power, marine and construction industries.

It all began on a February day in 1991 with an impulse buy of equipment and stock from a retiring picture framer. In search of customers, I joined a local art class run by Royal Academy - trained tutor, Geoffrey Colbourne. I soon realised there was a market for my work…

The next few years saw the business developing. Customer numbers increased and links were formed with the National Trust at Standen where I staged solo exhibitions and tutored day workshops. My range of limited edition prints and cards grew and I invested in the equipment to produce my own giclee images. I became interested in both the conservation and tourism side of Ashdown Forest and its villages, working with Elite Hotels (Ashdown Park), High Weald AONB Unit and local tourist attractions.

I joined the Ashdown Forest Tourism Association (AFTA) and Tourism South East. Being filmed for ITV's "Tales from the Country" with Selina Scott was exciting and I have also appeared on various public information films. I am reliably informed that my work has found its way to all corners of the globe and at last count I have sold over five hundred original paintings and several thousand prints.

My business, Cogcraft in Nutley, is my usual centre of operations and every available space has been commandeered. My passion for conservation also runs into the arts and I buy and sell antique prints, often rescuing them from unstable framing and acid-laden backboards. Visitors are most welcome and there is generally a pastel on my easel, but a phone call is very much appreciated. Please contact me to arrange a viewing.

Cogcraft Concepts can be found at: Forest Bank Farm, Clockhouse Lane, Nutley, East Susex, TN22 3NZ
It's just off the A22 between Uckfield and East Grinstead, Ashdown Forest.
