Painting Broadpool at twilight

Here’s my latest painting, its very much a work in progress. Its much bigger than the other canvases so has taken alot more work to get right. The location is Broad Pool, Gower Peninsula, South Wales – which is one of my favourite locations, Its based on a photo of mine which was taken at dawn, with the colours just starting to appear in the sky, reflection and low lying mist.

Misty Morning

I was up at 5am this morning to go the Gower Peninsula, I wanted more misty shots and the weather and conditions are perfect for this right now. I got out of the car and found a pony and her foal wandering towards me, curious as to why anyone would be there so early?! after a little while she wandered off into the mist with her little one.

It was still dark when we got there, so had to use a torch to avoid stepping in huge puddles and animal doings, yesterday it rained so much that the ground was waterlogged, so fun for me to try and avoid!

This is one of the photos, taken after it lightened up a bit, I have lots to process…

Its a challenge taking photos at this time of day as you have to be quick with the lighting conditions, they change so quickly, plus the mist moves very fast.
