Rhossili – weather closing in

IMG_1511

This painting was worked up from the initial sketch reproduced below. In many ways I like the unadulterated rawness of the sketch. There’s always a danger of over-working a painting, refining it and and putting in too much detail leaving little to the imagination. I hope I’ve not taken this painting too far in that direction.

Perhaps a few figures may yet appear on the beach to give the cliffs a sense of scale.
