Brynmill School

Back to school!

A blog about my visit to local junior school as part of their St David’s Day celebrations. I was representing Welsh Art, as I have lived and painted in Wales most of my adult life. It was a delightful experience.

Donegal Blues

Paints represent a sort of non-verbal language for me. I actually find it hard to put into words how I feel about paints. I have a “feeling” in my stomach and I want to wave my hands about a bit to express those feelings. I don’t know if other artists are like this. I see colours in life and think of the paints I might use to represent them on the canvas. This blog is about a particular shade of blue.

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!
