“This is an oil painting of an allotment nestled up beside the magnificent ruins of Oystermouth Castle in Mumbles, near Swansea South West Wales. I loved the transition of buildings, light and trees as one looks through the public park in the distance.”
A new oil painting as of today, 40 x 40 cm. This oil painting “Up Village Lane, Mumbles” is a naive painting of a rather lovely lane, Village Lane, in Mumbles, near Swansea which crawls up the hill from Swansea Bay.
The lane is a huddle of beautifully coloured cottages, of various pastel shades, which are especially colourful when the sun is out although their assembled ability to cheer the heart on a grey day is always appreciated too.
It is quite difficult to paint the front of Mumbles unless one is on a boat. I photographed this image from further around the arch of Swansea Bay with a telephoto lens.
