ABOUT RACHEL HOWELLS ARTIST

I am fascinated by the natural world and man's interaction with it, the power of the River Severn, the amazing bridges that link the South West with Wales and the extraordinary diversity of geology and scenery of the coast. Around once a month, in the warmer seasons, I take a day off from work and explore and paint the landscape with my friend from Bristol. During the winter, when the nights are long, I enjoy painting nightscapes.  In these, the shapes are defined by the lit spaces around them and the different shades of blackness rather than the objects themselves.

View of Cowbridge looking towards the West along the A48, 2014

Frame size: Not framed

Size:  125 x 180mm

Medium:  Watercolour / paper

The valley in which Cowbridge lies is surrounded by pretty farming country.  The local shops in the small town attract lots of visitors and the road through the town can get busy with traffic and pedestrians.  The A48 bypasses the town, but the view from the bridge near the filling station gives a good view of the geography of the area.  This view was painted before the recent housing development was started.
