I am delighted to announce the publication of my latest book “Footnotes, An Artist’s Journey Around the Gower Coast” which is based on my walks and blogs of 2018.
Yesterday was Clyne Farm’s first Christmas Market and we were blessed with sparkling crisp sunshine. It was very popular.
This is my most recent woodland painting of the pinewoods near Parkmill and Illston, on the Gower Peninsula.
I like this section of woodland as the pine needles on the ground deaden footsteps and although birdsong can be heard, it seems quieter than the surrounding beech wood.
This is the first woodland painting I have done for quite a while. This is a section of pine woods called Canisland Woods, near Parkmill, Gower.
Although I don’t think that I paint cows all that often, they have added up over the years.
My previous painting of Mewslade Bay, Gower, had been all about majesty and rocks but this one was different, it was more about colour and light.
As a painter, I feel that I have succeeded if I my work can provoke an emotional reaction.
My last stage of my coastal walk along the marsh road of North Gower.
In part one of this walk from Llanmadoc to Llanrhidian I walk along the edge of the salt marshes of north Gower coast and find a dark story from the Second World War.
