Yay, Finally finished this painting and thought I would share…
On the way home I took a little detour to test out my new camera, I am incredibly happy with the results…
Time to get back out into the landscape! 🙂
I enjoyed painting so much I did another one. I wanted to create the feeling of a hazy summers day, the summer bit came quite natural as the weather in Wales right now is beautiful, but I was missing the haziness, so I decided to watch jaws – not for the shark bit, but for the style, the sounds and the way they made me feel when painting the canvas.
I really like the effect, painting is really helping me to relax.
Recently I’ve had a real urge to get back into painting, it’s been so long since I really painted, so I decided to give it a go.
I really enjoyed it, it’s as if I never stopped. I’m very lucky as I have lots of landscapes to paint 🙂
And here’s the photo it’s based on:
It’s not as dark and moody as the original and I’ve added more movement to the water. With art I am able to omit items I don’t want and add items if I want 🙂
Here are the two panoramas from last Mondays wanderings.
It was really hazy and warm looking, but in reality very cold and windy – my hair looked like a birds nest within five minutes!

I scaled the steep gradient to the position within no time as I had a goal to get there for sunrise.
The reason for the panoramas? I’m doing a 4 panel canvas to put on the wall, I’m aiming for an uplifting landscape – something local.
I’m having a weekend off, ok the truth of it is I’m fighting of a lurgy that’s had me weak, achy and with a temperature since Thurs – I’m giving myself a break, I’ll get back to the photography soon.
Hope you like! 🙂 Thanks for visiting!
This is one of the panoramic shots I took yesterday, it is made up of five portrait shots and then I used the merge function to stitch them. Its going onto a very large canvas and needs to have visual impact, which I think it does.
If you’ve visited my blog before you’ll probably notice that I’ve been here many times, its one of my favourite locations.

Sunset over Gower
I spent yesterday on a search for a panoramic photo – I took lots and am very happy with the results, which I will post here soon.
But here are a few shots I took of the landscape around me.
I spent yesterday afternoon down Bracelet bay photographing the shore. There were more leading lines in the rocks here, but the light isn’t as good as around the corner in Limeslade, as it is south east facing. I really like the rocks though, they weren’t sharp like the ones on Sunday – thank goodness, I didn’t end up injuring my hand this time.
But I did remember to wear my wellies, so it didn’t matter if the tide caught up with me.
I’ve never been one to write in a diary, but I will be buying one to write all the location and season info I pick up on…
