Calm summer afternoon, Rhossili.

My goal for a long time now has been to paint looser, to allow the paint to do the work and to just let the paint be, to let go sooner. Simplify, simplify, simplify. I am trying to think in terms of the relationship between just a few large masses, to focus on getting this right rather than getting bogged down in describing detail painstakingly accurately. I think I’m getting there… slowly!

I always agonise over whether to include figures in a landscape painting. In this case I have used figures on the beach and cliff top to suggest the dramatic scale of these cliffs.

Oil on canvas mounted on board, 27 x 38cm.
