There is something special about a Triptych (definition of Triptych at bottom of blog entry). It can be used in a variety of ways. For example one painting in three sections or as I had chosen to do, three themed images. The theme would be our favourite elements/places of the Gower.
So here's the centre part of the Triptych (see above :-)). It's a painting of Pwll Du Bay. I've painted it once before but this painting is from a different angle and a completely different painting and drawing style.
Here's the original painting I did 18 months to two years ago. A much more traditonal style but with some originallity in the use of texture and materials (watercolour used like Oil Paints)... I hope.
For those who don't know the term.Triptych is defined in the Oxford University Press as: A picture consisting of three parts and denoting both the object itself and its compositional form. As an object the triptych may vary in size and material, but usually consists of a central panel flanked by wings (or shutters), which may be hinged; as a compositional form it is a tripartite structure, often with an emphasized central element. Although its imagery was, until the 19th century at least, predominantly religious, the object as such was not tied to a specific function.
