  Note from the Artist: The ruins of Carreg Cennan Castle stand three miles south-east of Llandeilo, perched at the top of an
inland cliff at the west end of the Black Mountain. It is one of my favourite castles, largely because of its spectacular situation,
which is evident from this vantage point. As it stands today the castle is the result of rebuilding, probably in the 1280s and the
following decades, by the invading English following the wars conducted against the Welsh by King Edward I. There had,
however, been a Welsh Castle here before which the English occupied and repaired before beginning their new work.
After the early fourteenth century no major alterations were made, only repair works, so the castle is an unaltered
survival from the period 1280-1330. It is now in the care of CADW.

  Note from the Artist: Devizes is a town that is located right in the middle of Wiltshire. It has a once-important castle,
now almost entirely obscured by the 19th century "castle" built on top, and not accessible to the public. The outer part
of the extensive castle enclosure eventually became the town centre, with the street pattern still clearly determined by
the medieval defences. St John's church (see Paintings for Sale, Gallery 3) was inside the inner bailey of the castle
and may have originally been the castle chapel. Although the town has grown it is still possible to get out into open
countryside nearby, such as the field which provided the viewpoint for this picture.

  Note from the Artist: A small unexceptional road on the edge of the village, painted mostly in situ on four successive
August days between 11.00am and 1.00pm, while on holiday in the village of St Cezaire-sur-Siagne, which is in southern
France, inland from Cannes. Mediterranean light is noticeably different from the light in the UK, and I wanted to paint it
on the spot - this location offered a nice quiet place to do that.

Watercolour & gouache

Image size 49.5 x 72.5 cms

Sold

  Note from the Artist: I painted this shortly before the practice of stubble burning ended, because I knew that the decision to
ban burning had been taken. The painting is deliberately dramatic, almost apocalyptic, because it represents the impending
end of a long-standing agricultural practice. The place depicted is near a road intersection in Wiltshire known as Five-Ways,
on the road between Bradford-on-Avon and Corsham, and the burning was really taking place there. The title refers to
earth, air, fire and water, all of which are present.
