This stunning view is of Rhossili Bay, in Gower Peninsula, Wales, constantly voted one of the most beautiful in the UK and Europe. The house in the distance is a former rectory, now luxury holiday home. I loved this painting because of the colours mainly.
Rhosilli Bay is famous for the rusty, red-brown colour of the burnt-crisp heather on the hills sliding down to the beach but in this image the hills were a deep brilliant blue for a change.
It was this novelty in the colouring that attracted my attention and made me wanted to paint this view.

About the artist
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.see "Towards The Old Rectory " on Emma Cownie's website
