This is the view of Mumbles Head from Bracelet Bay car park – the view that most people are familiar with, and the one where I’ve sat in the comfort of my car to draw many times. Sometimes the rain falling on the windscreen fragments the view in interesting ways to distort and make strange the familiarity.
I made this painting on Sunday, 16th of February, the tail end of “Storm Dennis”, the rain has cleared although the wind at 50-60 mph is still whipping up the sea. It is this restless ever-changing sea that drew me to make this painting, with the late winter sun catching the waves and the lighthouse.
Oil painting on canvas board, 12 x 10 inches.
