The Long Man of Wilmington


The origins of this mysterious guardian of the South Downs have baffled archaeologists and historians for hundreds of years.

It is 227 feet tall and dates from the 16th or 17th century. During the Second World War it was painted green to avoid it being used as a landmark by German aircraft.

I waited for the rapeseed to come out so that this painting could be made even more colourful because I like the colour combination of the yellow with the pure green shades of the lush landscape.

If you would like an ORIGINAL painting and it is shown as SOLD or UNAVAILABLE, please contact me. I can easily paint you another original, similar to – but not exactly the same as – the picture displayed.
