Ruts and Rivulets, Broad Haven.jpg

Graham Brace

As a landscape and seascape artist I can think of no better place to live and work but in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

I am a founder member of the United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society. Although coloured pencil predominates in my work I frequently use a mixture of other media including soft pastel and gouache. I like to draw things precisely and I work from a combination of my own photographs, sketches, notes and memory.

 

I am an inveterate observer and I am fascinated by reflections in water, the effects of light, texture and the natural forms and surfaces of trees and rocks. I am drawn to the features within the landscape as much as the wider view itself.

The spectacular coast and countryside of Pembrokeshire, and in particular the estuary alongside which I live at Llangwm, provides me with inexhaustible inspiration and I try to depict its ever-changing moods in my paintings. The weather, the tide, the light, the season, the abundant wildlife…all these variable characteristics combine in a scene that never fails to make my heart sing.
