Rocky Shore



The watercolour above sold a while ago but is an example of generic subjects. It is actually off the Pembrokeshire Coast but could be anywhere. Many artists in the late 19th and early 20th century made their living painting numerous scenes like these. Whilst I am happy to paint most things I wouldn’t want to be painting these repeatedly.  As I have said before I tend to paint specific subjects i.e. a recognisable (hopefully) place or subject.

Today I did a watercolour of the Bascule Bridge in Carmarthen. I haven’t taken an image of it so I will probably post it tomorrow.All the decorations are down and life is reverting back to normal or a more restrained form of chaos if you like.
