I recently spent a week on the Isle of Wight visiting family and now
that I'm home I am busy painting from all of my sketches, plein air
studies and reference photos. This is the view of the Needles from the
cliffs over Alum Bay. Here's what Wiki has to say about the Needles:
Needles is a row of three distinctive stacks of chalk that rise out of
the sea off the western extremity of the Isle of Wight, UK, close to
Alum Bay. The Needles Lighthouse stands at the outer, western end of the
formation... The formation takes its name from a fourth needle-shaped
pillar called 'Lot's Wife' that collapsed in a storm in 1764. The
remaining rocks are not at all needle-like, but the name has stuck."
