Welcome to Postcards from Pembrokeshire (282/365)
Today’s Postcard: Barafundle
Barafundle is now well known whereas twenty years ago it was a bit off the well-trodden path. However, busy or otherwise few places rival the gorgeous gasp-factor, the tingle-y tickle of actually arriving by the arch and seeing that peachy smoothness beneath the cliff. The sand can be soft and plodgy or squeaky and taut under a soft thin layer. The smell of gorse flowers reminds me of ordering a poor choice of Malibu and pineapple in 1987.
Paint: (on my Ritec Red homemade earthy paint): sea and sky were painted with Kings (Deep), Cobalt and Lapis Lazuli blues, touch of Viridian for the turquoise factor; Ivory Black for the dark bits was then overpainted (the stone wall) with Lapis and Permanent Mauve.
Brush: Size 6filbert (hog); size 2 and 4 round (synthetic).
Hwyl, hope you like the painting,
