Six Seasalter huts

Six Seasalter huts © Peter Gander
For my upcoming show at the end of May at The Horsebridge Gallery, Whitstable, this represents part of a row of beach huts (well, more dwellings as they appear much larger and sophisticated than your average beach hut) just west of Whitstable in Seasalter, named after the medieval practise of collecting sea salt from the shallow Thames estuary here in medieval times in shallow copper pans as the sea receded and the sea water evaporated. The huts line a private beach in front of a reedy grassland near the renowned Sportsman pub. Winsor & Newton watercolour on The Langton 100% cotton (forme ronde/rough) 300gsm paper.
