Mewslade, Gower

IMG_1136

Mewslade is one of the less accessible bays on the Gower Peninsula, but is also one of the most dramatic, being enclosed by soaring limestone cliffs. The cliff shown in this small oil painting is Thurba Head to the west of the bay. On top of this cliff are the remains of an iron age fort.

In this particular painting, I have applied the paint quite thickly giving a textured impasto effect. Oil painting on canvas prepared board, 30 x 24 cm.
