Overlooking Cardiff Market

By Emma Cownie

Overlooking Cardiff Market

I love the Victorian indoor Market in Cardiff with it’s steel fixtures, supports and arches, the huge glass, sky lit, two-tone ceiling. The colours are reminiscent of Victorian colours which create a heady swirl for me. The vibrancy of the place in blobs of bright colour, orangey yellow and jadey blues complemented with muted but tasteful browns all held in place by wrought iron black Victorian lines.

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.
