Doing the Dorset Arms, Lewes

sketched out the pub and splashed on the colour

and now for the drawing on heavy paper

close up on the drinkers, more Morris Men!

For my next Lewes painting I have chosen to paint The Dorset Arms which nestles at the end of Malling Street under the Downs.
I think this pub was probably a very lucky survivor, the street immediatel to it's north was closed off and buildings demolished for the building of the new road, bridge and Cuilfail tunnel.
The Dorset gets its name from the Dukes of Dorset that originally were the landowners of the manor of Cliffe and the Coat of Arms shows leopards holding a shield, which gave the Dorset Arms its original name of The Cats.

Anyway, enough drawing, now it is time to play with paint!
