Painting of woodland stream

The Bend in the Stream

I am just going to post the photo of this woodland oil painting, it seemed to take all week to paint.

Still, I doubled down and worked hard and I am pleased with the final result.

From Fall Island

Along the diverse coast of The Rosses there are many small island very close to shore. One of them is Fall Island, which can be reached by foot when the tide is low. There is only one single house on the 300 metres long island.

Walking the Gower Coast: Port Eynon to Rhossili Part 1

Walking the Gower Coast. The Rules.

I have a curiosity about exploring the whole coastline of Gower. The whole coastline is something like 38 miles long. I know and love certain parts of it very well, such as Three Cliffs Bay, which I have visited and painted many times but other parts I have never visited at all. I will change that and walk its length. I will document my walk with photos, sketches, and paintings.
