Whitesands Bay, Pembrokeshire

My first ever visit to Whitesands Bay and I was impressed with the beautiful bay and the remote rocky headland of St Davids Head – it is well known as one of the best surfing beaches in the country. My brief was to capture an unsual part of this area which reflected character and persona. Following a short walk along the cliff tops on the west side, I came across a rocky outcrop which captured my imagination and I immediately took some images for reference.

This painting is the end result of simply seeking to find something that is different and engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed painting this scene and I believe it is one of my best to date.
