The Great Tor, Three Cliff Bay, Gower

thumbnail-35

I have painted this monumental piece of rock many times, but previously always in watercolour. This is my first oil painting of the subject from this viewpoint. The Great Tor is the limestone promontory that effectively separates Three Cliff Bay from the great sweep of Oxwich Bay, on the Gower Peninsula. One is accessible to the other only when the tide is at its lowest and you are able to walk around the headland.

Oil on canvas mounted on a panel, 61×46 cm. (24×18 inches)

    Thank you, Emma. Always good to get positive comments, but especially from a fellow painter.
