The Needles

I asked Tim to produce a painting of The Needles, the Isle of Wight’s iconic landmark. It turns out that Tim knows this area well and has already sketched and painted The Needles.

Below is his monoprint of The Needles and below that is a copy of his sketchbook, where he made jottings and notes.

Needles - monoprint - by Tim Baynes, my artist in residence.

I love the way he turned the marker buoys into chess pieces.

And here are a couple of my own photographs of The Needles, taken during my walking round the coast.
