Welcome to Postcards from Pembrokeshire (264/365)
Today’s Postcard: Lane near Loveston
I took the wrong turning about three times (I blame my old ’62 Morris) near Templeton, Yerbeston and Loveston, but it was a delightful wander through lanes that I used to get lost on, on my bike, 35 years ago. But without the fear of a collie gnawing my achilles by each farm gate. Wild parsley, red campions, buttercups and bluebells, jack-by-the-hedge looked on. Loveston. A dozen paths more to walk. This poetic drift is Watson Jones’ fault: he’s reading Thoreau.
Paint: (on my Ritec Red homemade earthy paint): a happy sky of Kings Blue Deep and Titanium White; Permanent Mauve and Oxide of Chromium green for the distant verges; Viridian and Sap Green for the shadows; Cadmium Green Pale with Lemon Yellow, touch of white for the highlights. A stormcock (mistle thrush) warned of rain.
Brush: Sizes 4 and 8 filbert (hog); sizes 2, 4 round (synthetic).
I hope that you like the painting,
