This pastel montage is by the celebrated mainland artist Basil Scott-Evans. Entitled "A song for the Isle", it is further described as "an occasional sight of the Wight from Dyke Downs behind Hove - sunset after a sou'wester". Hove is near Brighton on the mainland, some miles from the Island - however the Island can be seen on a clear day with good visibility - especially after a shower following the passing of a 'cold front'.
To compliment the painting a piece of music has been composed, arranged and played by Peter Pheby, with very special thanks to Derek Hicks. The music is entitled 'Solent'. Click here to hear the music.
