Burry Port

The painting above is of Burry Port Lighthouse with the Gower in the distance. The painting was sold yesterday.
Burry Port Harbour was originally built between 1830 -32 to handle shipments of coal from the area. It was re-vamped recently with the siting of a marina and housing. The lighthouse is no longer part of Trinity House lights but I believe it still functions. I have painted the light house and harbour several times in different compositions.
Today I felt a bit of a chill wind while walking the dog and that prompted me to paint a winter landscape of the Towy Valley. Tomorrow I am in the gallery. I am not sure what I will be painting.
