Digging Bait Under Mumbles Pier

By Emma Cownie

Digging Bait Under Mumbles Pier

An exuberant summery oil painting of a portly, eager, fisherman, digging for bait under Mumbles Pier, in Mumbles, Wales.
I loved all the summery blues and the straight intricate struts of the pier in contrast to the rough foreground of seaweed strewn rocks where the fisherman digs for bait.

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.
