Downland Man.

Eric Ravilious

English Landscape Painter and War Artist 

1903 - 1942 

I first came across Eric Ravilious on Facebook of all places. 

Something about the way he captured the downlands of Wiltshire and Sussex grabbed my attention. 

I've interspersed some of his work with a few photographs taken during the Muddy Boys excursions over similar territory. 

I think you'll see why he connected. 

I went to see Downland Man an exhibition of his work at the Wiltshire Museum last week.

 Time to get the woolies out.
Thanks to Alan Moulton for the Photo, its not often I'm caught smiling. 

Sistership and Lapwing at rest. 

The DCA really know how to throw a party.

Lovely lines and massive sailplan once that bowsprit is deployed. Lying Wells-a-bit-further-from-the-sea-than-advertised.
