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!
My walk to Whiteford Point. This is seen by many as the wildest and most remote part of Gower, on its furthest northern tip.
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.
This is the last of the summer wine of a substantial series of oil paintings of a woodland area in Gower Pensinsula between Ilston and Parkmill, which the locals call Cannisland Woods. It is amazingly beautiful at any time of the year but the light is rarely better…
