Portal To The Otherworld

24 Apr

On our last day in North Wales, earlier in the week, Husb and I visited Pistyll Rheadr, a magnificent waterfall near Llanrheadr ym Mochnant in Powys. On the edge of the Berwyn Mountains, it’s the longest single drop waterfall in the UK and is also reputed to be one of the six portals to Annwn, the Otherworld of Welsh legend, that coexists with our own, a bit like a parallel universe. It’s beautiful and neither the photograph nor the drawing do it justice. Both only show the lower drop, the whole waterfall is much higher and spectacular. I used watercolours, my home made walnut ink and white conte crayon onto a rough handmade vintage blue-grey paper.

Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year are currently looking for artists to take part in the new series of the programme.

This amazing opportunity is open to all artists over 16, resident in the UK. To enter send in a landscape artwork that you have created within the last five years, via their website.

If selected to take part in the competition you will then be given the opportunity to paint a specially chosen, stunning landscape within the UK. The prize on offer is a £10,000 commission for a major British institution plus £500 worth of art materials from Cass Art. The deadline for applying to the competition is 30th April 2021.
