Brighton Festival – two private views

We had planned to visit five opening night parties on the evening of Friday 6th May – a ridiculous plan – we managed two.
Nick Orsborn was showing his delightfully witty watercolours, as well as his acrylic jewelry. Some pleasing pottery and leaf embossed leather-bound sketch books too.

Then on to Ned Hoskins. He is showing paintings and drawings from when he first opened his house 30 years ago. Good wine, delicious food and friends, so no chance of moving on. We were both tempted by Ned’s work. Two paintings, nearly abstract but just a bit of realism, in one the white cliffs (Seven Sisters?), in the other a fishing boat both caught my eye, as well as a pencil drawing of a stile on the Downs.
Ned, as ever, was keen to explain, expand and elucidate.
