I visit the church of St Illtyd and Oxwich Head. The Gower, although beautiful is full of natural hazards and some supernatural ones too.
This part of my walk sees me breaking all my rules. But that’s OK. The thinking goes, if you are paralyzed by anxiety and a fear of failure: “Just do it, badly.” So I did it badly today but I did it.
Three Cliffs Bay never fails to disappoint. It does not matter how many times I see it. It is particularly spectacular at high tide in the morning light. It is probably the one beach I have visited most often and certainly painted most often, on the Gower coast.
My walk along the Gower coast line visits Pwll Du and Hunts Bay, two secluded places on the South Gower coast.
My journey on the Gower coastal path continues at Caswell Bay and then on the Brandy Cove.
Photos, words and paintings inspired by my Gower coastal walk from Limeslade, Langland Bay and ending at Caswell Bay.
The Gower Peninsula juts out westwards into the Bristol Chanel. Its about 17 miles in length and 8 miles width at its widest point. I am planning to walk around its coastline, approximately 38 miles in length, maybe a bit less. I am starting at Mumbles.
I am delighted to have been featured in April’s edition of Welsh Coastal Magazine as part of their ongoing series “Inspirations” on contemporary artists in Wales.
I have a curiosity about exploring the whole coastline of Gower. The whole coastline is something like 38 miles long. I know and love certain parts of it very well, such as Three Cliffs Bay, which I have visited and painted many times but other parts I have never visited at all. I will change that and walk its length. I will document my walk with photos, sketches, and paintings.
This part two of photo-essay on great artists who have either painted their pets, or other people’s pets as a way of proving that pets are a proper subject for serious artists.
