I have had an ambivalent relationship with painting clouds. My approach to painting clouds has been transformed by looking at and painting Irish skies.
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!
It is no secret that I love animals. I come from a family of animal lovers.So its no surprise that I often choose dogs (and their owners) as subjects for my art.
My last stage of my coastal walk along the marsh road of North Gower.
Shadows were my first love. They still are. It’s hard to find any painting of mine without blue/mauve/purple/brown shadows. When I get hold of an idea I can get quite obsessive about it. Lately, it’s been early morning light.

The second part of my long walk along the Gower coast path from the Knave to Worms Head and Rhossili.
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.
