The Helvetia Shipwreck
Rhossili, Gower

This is a painting which depicts the incredible seascape view of Rhossili Bay with the Helvetia Shipwreck seeping through the sandy beach in the foreground and the breathtaking view of Worms Head in the distance.

This large-format painting (200cm x 90cm) was a joy to paint as the subject matter is so familiar to me – this is my second painting of this famous scene.


Private Commission

“ While building our contemporary new home on the coast we soon came to the conclusion that our current collection of framed prints would not do justice to the house. We had a palette of colours, based on the shade of timber, floor tiles, stone and wall colour that we wanted to use. At our first meeting with Vyvyan and his wife Barbara, it became clear that our colour ideas and potential landscape scenes could be captured on canvas. The advice and sharing of their experiences were crucial in terms of canvas sizes, frame design/colour along with potential locations to show off the artwork. We moved in six months ago and can honestly say we are delighted with our “Living with Art“. Comments from visitors are most complimentary.”
