Butler Bayliss often visited the Welsh coast. He was particularly inspired by locations such as Aberdovey and Anglesey, a love he shared with his friend and fellow artist Joseph Vickers de Ville. The soft light that bathes the scene, the sense of space and cool, blue-green palate, is again strikingly different to Butler Bayliss’ dark industrial canvases.
