views over the Bristol Channel, which flows past a salt marsh just
beyond the garden wall of the house. But about a year ago I started to
make notes of the early morning and late evening skies looking towards
the Welsh hills; just lists or stripes of colour, the marsh, the water,
the hills, the sky striations of clouds.
From these notes I made pastel studies and in the evenings I
photographed the sunsets - well just after it had set - as the
afterglow lights the underside of the clouds in warm gold and pink.
Now I am developing a series of large enamel panels stitched together
to evoke these wonderful skies.
