Dayglo beginning

I'm thinking of a painting similar to 'September Fields'....a bit further back in this blog. This start is more like daffodil vale with disney influenced skies. I know what I want, but getting there......

Back to last Monday

Late afternoon in Abermawr, all my paints and oil pastels, charcoal and papers are out. Sun is shining.

Thursday 8th Oct

Spent the whole day in Porthgain. Small natural harbour with everything! A pub, art gallery, history and selection of boats and crafts.

Wednesday 7th Oct

Strumble Head in the morning, the lighthouse is a magnet for walkers. I started working in splendid solitude around 8.45am. By the time I had finished a couple of small sketches, the place was crowded with dog walkers, ramblers, and those who sit in cars reading newspapers enjoying the view.

Tuesday 6th Oct

So rainy! Spent the afternoon in Fishguard, there are two harbours there. I hung around the commercial harbour, watching the ferry for Ireland.

Monday 5th Oct

All these small works on paper are around Abereiddy, a tiny bay with a beautiful coast path walk running through it. An old brickworks still makes its presence felt.

Four days in Pembrokeshire

I have just spent four days in Pembrokeshire, Wales. I was lucky to have (mostly) excellent weather, and I spent time drawing and painting the fields, footpaths and coastline around St Davids. Fabulous experience, I enjoyed every moment.

September Fields

I know it's October today....but I have daringly called this 'September Fields'. It is mixed media on watercolour paper, 57x75cm
