( Working Titles )
( Updated 5th December 2013: 'New Quay' painting stage 4 added )
Dunraven Bay 36'' by 24'' - A commission for a client, this is a beautiful beachscape of Dunraven bay. The photograph supplied by the client has a wonderful composition, with a sweeping perspective leading in, and up, the beach. It's early days with this one, but I think it's going to work wonderfully.
New Quay 24'' by 18'' - I visited New Quay a couple of weeks ago, a local village on Cardigan Bay, here in west Wales. I took lots of photographs whilst there, and this is going to be a painting looking out to the pier and beyond, using a couple of those photos for reference. I'll put some fishing boats and other harbour life in here toward the end.
Newport Heather 16'' by 12'' - A walk up in the hills around Carningli near Newport this summer has inspired me to paint this scene. It's early days still, but the view will be looking back down toward Newport beach, with lots of purple heather in the foreground.
This painting is now finished and available, see Finished Newport Heather Painting Here
Freshwater West, Pembrokeshire 30'' by 12'' - Freshwater West is a wonderful beach in south Pembs, and just a little bit famous for being where they filmed some of the Harry Potter movies and the Russell Crowe Robin Hood movie. I want to capture the vast expanse of the beach and also some of the dunes in this painting - SOLD
Newport Across the Estuary 30'' by 20'' - This is an interesting viewpoint I saw at Newport Pembs a little while ago. It's looking north over the estuary and the river Nevern from the Parrog, toward the main Newport beach. There are some boats going in here later.
Seated at Aberporth 24'' by 18'' - I don't paint many close up scenes like this one ..will eventually be. I'll put a wooden seat in here later, with a figure sitting on it. Mainly I want to capture the light, and at the risk of sounding arty, the essence of the scene that day.
