I adore the Welsh coast. I spent a lot of time there while I lived in Wales and currently hanker after that feeling of being alive that a walk along a quiet beach as the sun sets gives you. This painting is not of a particular place but of a feeling engendered by many visits. The horizontal brushwork and layers of cloud in the sky bring an amazing sense of peace and tranquility, the colours are warm and soothing. There will be more on this theme with little boats or silhouetted figures, cliffs, seabirds and rock pools - I love rock pools so if this one isn't quite right, keep coming back as I gradually add more work.
