In 1962, having purchased two cottages on Garn Fawr near St David's, Piper started spending far more time exploring and depicting Pembrokeshire. The area surrounding Garn Fawr was an attractive subject for landscape paintings, and although the paintings had landscape titles, they looked almost entirely abstract. As Piper said in late 1962, this year my work has changed rather fiercely, the topographical
element has retired a good deal
