Here’s quite a ‘straight’ watercolour of a ‘straight’ view – something I rarely do as I’m so used to moving things about, adding bits here and there. It’s of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path as it heads west from the Parrog end of Newport, towards Cwm Yr Eglwys and Dinas Head.
This painting is composed using a single photo to start me off, after which I just let the brushes go their own way using my memory and imagination. The building pictured is Mariner’s Cottage.
I’m not a confident walker so I especially love the easy amble this part of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. But we never get very far because I have to keep stopping every few steps to look at everything!
A painting of the voyage of HMS Beagle, the ship on which Charles Darwin travelled around the world -with particular attention to South America - making discoveries as he went that would change the course of natural science.
