Solitary Winter Swimmer at Langland, Gower

I’m currently working on a series of coastal paintings that focus on clouds. I am enjoying exploring the subtle greys and the rhythms of the ever changing cloud formations, attempting to re-create the atmosphere I experienced on that particular day. This is Langland Bay on the Gower Peninsula in south Wales, a popular venue for surfers and, increasingly, all-year-round bathers.

As usual I have several paintings in progress at any one time. This is the first that I’ve finished. It’s 12 x 12 inches oil on canvas board, and like all my paintings is for sale. If interested please contact me at

  1. Nice painting, I really like how that shaft of light leads the eye to the swimmer. It must be incredibly cold swimming in mid March.

    Thanks Shawn. Yes, the sea is very cold this time of the year… far too cold for me, but there are those brave souls who swim all year round.
