Rainy Sunday

30 Apr

Sunset

Husb and I have been in West Wales all day, visiting friends. The weather when we left was gorgeous but by the time we arrived, heavy rain was moving in from the Irish Sea and scuppered our plans for a countryside walk and some quick sketching en plein air. Of course it rained, it’s a Bank Holiday weekend! Never mind, it was nice to stay in and catch up. As we drove home, I turned to look back at the North Pembrokeshire coast from the Presceli Mountains. There was a break in the rain and the evening sun shone through the thick cloud for just a few moments. I might not have managed any scribbling, but the photo opportunity made up for it.

 

I have put my series of drawings en plein air of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder.  If you want to see more, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page. This one is the legendary grave of Saint Elfys (Elvis) in Pembrokeshire, not for from the Preseli Mountains. Elfys? Preseli? Elvis Presley? Coincidence? hhhmmmm

    Does your husband sketch too? I’m trying to maximise family time with added sketching whilst keeping everyone happy – can’t do sketching only from a beer garden!

      He draws but rarely sketches although he sometimes joins me for public sketching events 😀

    Gorgeous photo, that would be an excellent source for a painting!
