Paintings of Mumbles and Gower, South Wales

Here are 4 watercolours of the Gower Peninsular and Mumbles, in South Wales. The first is of Mumbles Lighthouse seen from the sea, with Bob’s Cave noticeable. In the background is the Mumbles Pier, still standing but for how long is anybody’s guess, with all the rust on the iron supports. The second is of the old Salthouse ruins in Port Eynon Bay, an infamous place connected with smuggling and salt production in days long gone. It’s shown as it might have appeared around the turn of the last Century. Pictures 3 and 4 are of Caswell Bay (situated at the start of the Gower Peninsular) and Whiteford Lighthouse, at the furthermost tip of the Peninsular. This marvellous, largely deserted stretch of coastline, is the home to many sea birds and wildlife in general.450-img_0220.JPG
