Weird Weobley

22 Jun


I was so blown away by last night’s Midsummer sunset that Husb and I drove out to Weobley Castle on the Gower Peninsula this evening to find another glorious view. It’s so easy to take our landscape and history for granted, I don’t think most of us realise what an exceptional part of the world we live in. We walked up to the castle and sat looking West over the salt marshes at three weird and distinct woods in the distance, just in front of the Loughor estuary.


The sun moved fast and I had to work very quickly as things were changing by the minute. It’s only possible to do a fleeting impression – well it is for me anyway. Maybe not for Monet. I used Daler Rowney artists’ soft pastels into a Khadi handmade paper sketchbook, 6″ square with deckled edges.


There was a rave going on just below the castle and we listened to Trance as the sun went down and threw spectacular colours over weird cloud formations all around us.
