I realised recently that I've never really painted the area I grew up in, which came to think about it was pretty short sighted. I'm obsessed with the sky and the sea, but I'd never painted the stunning coast line of south Wales, which was a stone's throw from my bedroom window? Madness.
Anyway I'm rectifying that with a big painting of #Southerndown and #Ogmore-by-Sea viewed from #Porthcawl...so I'm squeezing all three into one painting to make up for it. Planning on adding some pearlised powder and gold leaf to the shimmery wet sand to make it more glimmery - so much fun!
