Swansea's Winter Wonderland

By Emma Cownie

Swansea's Winter Wonderland

A painting from Winter 2014 and the frosty breathed excitement of the ice skating rink at Swansea’s Winter Wonderland, with skaters, young, old and in between skating, falling over, helping each other up again. I love the movement and the joyous frivolity in this painting, the sheer array of many many neon night colours streaking across the ice and the fair behind. It is difficult to see so many colours present other than at a Winter Wonderland. The darkest time of the year brings with it the most colours.

About the artist

Emma Cownie

Born in Hereford, educated in Cardiff, I am a self-taught artist who lives in Swansea. I love light and colour. In my art I am drawn to light and shadows and how they shape our emotions. I use oil on linen canvas mainly. I remember visiting the South of France as a teenager and being mesmerized by the dazzling light, I have been attempting to capture that excitement about light in my paintings ever since. I particularly love the natural world, animals and landscapes. I am also drawn to empty places like churchyards, woods and hills. When I paint in oils I usually paint the light first and then layer the shadows and mid-tones. I try and make my colours bold and bright but as realistic as possible. I aim to make people look at the ordinary and see the extraordinary beauty in it.
