Skirrid in the Gloaming



When the sun goes down over Skirrid mountain in Monmouthsire, the sky creates soft and misty shades of blue or even pink, while the ridge behind my studio is in shadow.  It creates a sense of nostalgia, and memories of playing outside until the gloaming and being called home for tea.  And I think there’s a childlike appreciation of the view here.

Oil paint on canvas seemed the perfect vehicle to evoke the soft glow of this quiet evening world here on the border with Wales in this small but perfectly formed painting.
