Brandy Cove, Gower

thumbnail-14

First completed painting of 2020! This is a painting of a secluded cove located half a mile west of Caswell Bay on the Gower Peninsula, which is steeped in history and legend. Brandy Cove gets its name from the days when smuggling was rife on the Gower Peninsula and the sands were used to land illicit cargo of tobacco and alcohol. In the nineteenth century it was home to a lead and silver mine. These days it is popular as a bathing beach at low tide and dog walkers who stroll through the woods from the nearby village of Bishopston.

  1. Nice beach. I really like the tidal pool, and figures off in the distance.
