Rhossili Bay

Not long after I took to painting again, one of the subjects that I was very keen to paint was of Rhossili Bay in a style that was to me, quite symbolic, striking and expressive. The use of oil paints broadly applied with a palette knife provided the texture and the freedom to simplify the image and portray an image that captured the free-flowing style that I wanted to achieve. A gathering storm building up into such a spectacular atmosphere presented another opportunity to capture the dramatic scene on canvas.

With the focus on one of the historic lighthouses perched on the rocky peninsula of this tidal island, the turbulent waves present an ambiance of mystical quality – the exact aura I set out to express in my painting.
