Slate Cliffs And Bara Brith

29 Sep


Husb and I spent yesterday walking with friends along Newport beach on the North Pembrokeshire coast. Apart from the exceptional beauty of the place, it’s notable for the variety of wild birds along the estuary and the rugged vertical slate cliffs. I stood with my back to the slate cliff and quickly sketched the headland and the beach in front of me. I used Daler Rowney soft pastels into a small Khadi handmade paper sketchbook.

Afterwards, back at our friends’, we sipped tea, nibbled on home made bara brith and browsed through some books on Kyffin Williams’ landscape drawings. Inspirational.
