Higgeldy Piggledy Town

16 Feb

16 llandeilo

Husb and I took a ride down to the Fountain Fine Art gallery in Llandeilo today to drop off 10 of my etchings for the forthcoming exhibition of emerging Welsh artists, opening on Saturday 23rd February. It’s been a fine, bright day and after so much time spent indoors recently because of the lurgi, it was nice to stand in the main street for a while and sketch some of the odd, quirky little buildings. It’s a lovely town, built higgledy-piggledy on a hill above a classic meandering river that winds through a lush green flood plain dotted with little oxbow lakes. It reminds me of  school geography lessons.

Then we drove back along the A40 through Dryslwyn, Carmarthen and past Kidwelly, a glorious route, swinging by Saith Gallery in Burry Port which is showing a marvellous exhibition of collages by Melanie Ezra. They also serve excellent tea and homemade cake in their little cafe. Both galleries, and their little towns, are well worth a visit.

Drawn with Pentel V5 and Faber Castell Pitt pens into my A6 blue silk recycled sketchbook.
