Welcome to Postcards from Pembrokeshire Day 12/365
Today's Postcard "Curry Night"
I was away for the day so Watson Jones had a walk with the morning reserve team. I looked for him in case he was up for an early wander but WJ had traitorously found our guest's feet to warm...somehow not having a wander at the start of the day feels odd.
It was Curry night last night but there were spare raw materials aplenty for today's Postcard. I settled on the holy trinity of gingerchilligarlic. Most of which I could still taste, un peu trop d'ail peut etre? Looking for the subtle none-whites on the garlic's papery skin was trickier than I thought.
Paint: (on homemade Colby Bank ground colour) then Indian red, Burnt and Raw Siennas for the ginger plus a daub of Kings Blue Light; the chilli was a juggling act of Viridian, Sap Green and Permanent Green Light; also a touch of Bright Green Lake. Be careful with Lakes, they derive from "lac" and are glazey rather than truly opaque.
Leaving the beach this evening found me in a conversation with bats and a speckled wood butterfly under the trees, weaving around like soft ash from a bonfire.
