After a week of madness, Work is now In Progress (WIP), on my second portrait attempt.
After taking two months to get here, the carpet fitters finally arrived, and, as they do, fitted carpets throughout. This took over 2 days, but the emptying the rooms of furniture and then putting the furniture back has taken all our time.
The light here is amazing. I had heard artists talk of 'the light' and knew that Cornwall was considered the place to be with its famous Newlyn School.
It was only when we moved here to West Wales,that I realised what was meant by 'the light'. The colours leap out at me. When it rains I can seen up to 10 rainbows during the course of a day. Because we are high up (the house is named Highview) I can see rainbows ending in the sea or in green valleys - amazing.
The skies, like the weather, are dramatic. The colours are almost unpaintable - who would believe them?
Here is a photograph taken by Ian Wright, which captures a typical Fishguard sky.
