Rhossili at low tide

thumbnail-22

Just had this painting framed up and it’s off to its new home in Cardiff this weekend. It’s an unusual view of the dramatic Rhossili cliffs at low tide viewed from the downs that form the backdrop to the beach. It’s a 12 x 12inch oil painting on canvas board painted in one session.

The old Mumbles lifeboat station

After

This is a plein air painting made recently when I went out with a local group of Swansea artists on a bright but windy September afternoon. It is the old lifeboat station used between 1922-2014 and now replaced by the new station at the end of Mumbles pier. This old station is now home to a colony of kittiwakes.

Oil painting on canvas board, 10×10 inches.

Autumn walk, Caswell

Clouds scudding across the sky in the cool autumnal breeze. Tide out. A good day for dog walking.

Rhossili Cliffs and Downs

thumbnail-14

This painting is the result of an early morning painting excursion to Rhossili, before the tourists and holiday crowds arrived. I decided to take a view looking inland for a change with the downs and the much lauded three mile long stretch of beach in the background. It’s an oil painting on canvas board 12×10 inches.

Worms Head, Rhossili

thumbnail-6

Working on the cliff tops at Rhossili, Gower yesterday morning. A beautiful day and a beautiful place to be. I was using Winsor & Newton Alkyd oil paints which are fast drying – too fast in the heat and sunshine for my liking!

Finished yesterday, this is a subject I have attempted on several previous occasions. I used a warmer palette for this painting which included Michael Harding cadmium red and raw sienna, and I prefer the overall effect of this. The painting is 10×10 inches, oil on canvas board.
