WAYSIDE ART IN EAST ANGLIA

Simple straight lines can be surprisingly effective in attracting attention, especially if they are made into wide bands of colour.  As, for example, on this 85-foot tall lighthouse at Happisburgh in Norfolk. It was built in 1790 and was last painted in 1990.

 

These beach huts at Southwold in Suffolk are equally striking, so much so that this coastal town has become famous for them.  The first ones were built in the first decade of the twentieth century when it was not allowed for bathers to get changed in public.  Only a few of those remain, the majority dating from the 1930s.

LINES

COLOURED BANDS

Lines are relatively simple and economical to execute, and so are used frequently in decoration.
