The Hearth, (the Bus Station) Lewes

rough sketch of a plan for the painting

finished! Blue Skies, Buses and The Bakery

all framed and cards made

 The old bus station in Lewes is a fantastic building with an american feel. There was once a cafe up top and newsagent and sweet shop downstairs, which went the way of many old shop and closed up. But the bus station building has been brought back to life with a lovely bakery and a Pizza restaurant upstairs with Sour Dough pizzas that are getting rave reviews!
To give a nostalgic feel I brought back an old green and cream Southdown Bus!
