I have long suspected that my tendency towards SAD is one of the reasons why I paint so many sunny and bright scenes. The motivation for painting bright summer beach scence from Port Eynon, Gower.
This is a commission piece I have been working on this week. The brief was to paint this beautiful sunlit New York apartment.
Mewslade Bay is just round the corner from Worms Head and Rhossili Bay. There is no beach to speak of at high tide. At low tide, however, the sandy beach can be reached if you scramble down over some slippery rocks, and thick beds of seaweed that have been washed up against rocks.
As a painter, I feel that I have succeeded if I my work can provoke an emotional reaction.
