As well as Welsh Art for sale, visit the New Zealand paintings gallery to buy paintings inspired by my adventures overseas.
We Welsh artists are drawn to paint the rugged Welsh coast, and you will find local beach paintings of Llangrannog, Mwnt, Cwmtydu, New Quay, Aberporth, Tresaith and Aberaeron. Heading south from Cardigan, you'll find landscape paintings and seascape paintings of Pembrokeshire and it's beaches and villages, including Poppit beach, Ceibwr bay, Newport, Fishguard, Lower Fishguard Harbour, Strumble lighthouse and on down the Welsh coastline.
Wales' uplands too offer a great deal to Welsh artists, and you'll discover rural landscapes of Mid and West Wales, paintings of the Preseli Mountains and Pembrokeshire National Park, the Teifi valley and further west into the Tregaron and Cambrian mountains area.
The pet portrait paintings, portrait paintings and wildlife galleries contain a combination of past commissions and my own work.
"I am delighted with the pictures which represent a great example of your skill and artistic talent. They also remind me so much of happy times spent in West Wales many years ago."
"Hi Chris, postie has just delivered my beautiful painting!!! all safe and sound......looks fabulous! thank you so much, now to hunt down a really nice frame to set it off, can't wait to show Martin when he gets home, I know he will love it too - THANK YOU!!!"
"After you left, I decided that it would be a shame not to have at least one hanging where I can see it and gain so much pleasure from it straight away, so I have managed to put 'Cenarth' in the dining area. It does look lovely, it really does, what a talent you have."

You may have noticed that there is a new 'BLOG' link on my navigation bar above, which will take you to my new painting and art tips blog.
I get quite a lot of correspondence from art students, fellow artists and people new to painting, asking a range of art related questions. I'm always happy to answer any art questions via email, but I thought I would also share some of the hard won art lessons and tips on the business of being an artist, all in one place here on this new artist's blog.
I hope this new resource may be helpful to student artists, budding artists and anyone involved in the business of art. If you have anything you'd particularly like me to cover, let me know.
