I’m really please to have sold one of my prep studies for my heat stage on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year at The Gower in June. Rhossili 2 is off to a collector in London.
The painting is actually the view that I expected to have been given. Little did I know that the previous group had this view, and we were presented with Worms head. Still it worked out for me in the end.
I wanted to do two different studies of the view of the beach in two different conditions. No.1 had the unlikely event of clear skies- this scene was the more likely! I know this I have lived in Wales for five years!
