Preseli Rain

5 May

05 presceli

Husb and I set out from Swansea this morning to visit friends living in the Preseli Mountains in Pembrokeshire. It was a glorious warm, sunny day when we left but within a couple of hours of reaching the Preselis, we were hit by severe gales and torrential rain. We managed a quick walk before the deluge but cut our visit short to get back before nightfall. I drew this into my little Khadi sketchbook, using Daler Rowney soft pastels (artist quality). This is quite an accurate drawing; the wall of water reduced the visibility to a blur of greys and greens.
