Primal Barmouth

Smaller Paintings

This painting suggested itself. Old Barmouth was the subject, based on a previous painting that was itself on an old photograph.

As I painted another version I began to consider that there was once an individual who was the first person to visit the site of Barmouth. When? Long before the long cairns, the oldest neolithic sites in the area.

Leaving not a trace this aboriginal figure may have wandered by, fishing the shore.
