Part of the collection: ‘Where the wind blows’.

It was an amazingly windy day when I decided to go out and do some sketching of the wonderful Welsh Fans (pronounced ‘vans’). I couldn’t keep up with the speed that the view kept changing: every time I looked up, the mountains had either been obscured by clouds, or the sun was lighting them like a spotlight, or snow had started to fall! And all the while I was trying to hold everything down so that I could paint and sketch. It was a frantic, wild and beautiful afternoon.

I’ve used layers of acrylic and then oil paints to create textures and marks that are evocative of the blustery afternoon on the mountains.
