SOLVA Pembrokeshire - oil on canvas 25x30cm



Posted by PicasaI wanted to paint today even though it was very wet outside and incredibly dull inside, getting so dark in the end I attempted to take a few photos to add to my blog. They have been stretched through editing to get a picture out of the darkness. 
I was trying to conjure that felling on a bright sunny day when the sun is so hot that the sky darkens.

This is the pretty little port of Solva in Pembrokeshire.

Here's a little bit from WIKI ... The rocks at the entrance to Solva Harbour made it one of the most sheltered anchorages between Fishguard and Milford Haven. Solva became the main trading centre of St Bride's Bay in the medieval period, and was important for lime burning. Several lime kilns are preserved in the harbour area. In the 19th century, Solva had around 30 registered trading ships. The fading coastal trade has been replaced by tourism, and the harbour is now a popular boating centre.
The spectacular local cliff coast is popular with walkers, and the classic cliff exposures of Cambrian rocks attract amateur and professional geologists.
