A FOND FAREWELL - POPPIT SANDS - SOLD


Posted by Picasa
Now this is a painting I really enjoyed creating. It was new in many ways. Firstly I had built up a rough textured background through a number of coats of gesso. Then found I could obtain certain results by painting then rubbing away the same paint. Certain areas have been strongly under-painted then allowed to show through. It captures for me the thrill of going to this wonderful  part of North Pembrokeshire for the first time.
Through looking at Google maps people were enabled to see that on the coastal edge there was an arrangement of stones in a horseshoe shape. This, it was later discovered had been an ancient salmon trap used by the monks from a nearby monastery.
