Blog about painting Three Cliffs Bay, Gower by Emma Cownie

Autumn Light on Three Cliffs Bay

The sparkling autumn light is stunning. From a painter’s point of view is more interesting than summer light. I find it ironic that there’s less light around but its better quality, from an artists’ point of view. I still have not adjusted to the clocks going back last month, and I am still waking at 5 -5.30am!

Worms Head: a footnote to the Gower Walks

I have saved the best til last. I did not walk the length of Worms Head at the same time as my other Gower coastal Walks. This was because you cannot walk its full length between the 1st March and the 31st of August – as the last part of the Worm,  the Outer Head, is closed in order to protect nesting seabirds.

Round the Rosses

The Rosses is a region in the west of County Donegal, Ireland. The name comes from “Ros”, the Irish word for headland. It’s a barren but beautiful landscape, studded with a myriad of lakes and inlets of the sea.

Donegal

Donegal is at the north-western corner of the Republic of Ireland. Facing out towards everything the Atlantic has to through at it. It is very big, very beautiful and very empty.
