Original acrylic on canvas board

56cm x 29cm (62 x 36cm in frame).


Worm’s Head is a famous landmark on the Gower coastline near my home, and there are many many beautiful paintings of it. In this painting I have focussed on the powerful sky instead of the landmark: the clouds were stormy and the setting sun lit them in a glowing orange light, and silhouetted The Worm in the far distance. I loved the way the orange light changed the colours of the heathers to deep rich russets and purples. It was simply a lovely scene: hence ‘Hyfryd’, the beautiful Welsh word that describes ‘lovely’.

I have used slow-drying acrylics in this work, which has enabled me to work the colours together to achieve the smudgy, stormy effect on the clouds.

This work is sold framed.
