Welcome to Postcards from Pembrokeshire (187/365)
Today’s Postcard: A walk to Tenby
Not for the fainthearted, nor for the clumsyfooted…the walk from Saundersfoot to Tenby is considerable. Especially because the closer one gets to Monkstone Point, the further it seems to retreat. Secondly someone decided to hide about five hundred steps in steep cwms when you’re least expecting them. It goes on. But there are plenty of rewards too, such as this view from the path near Trevayne Farm.
Paint: (on my Ritec Red homemade earth paint): Caldey and Tenby were underpainted with a strange polychrome of Burnt Sienna, Cobalt Blue and Dioaxine Purple, over-brushed with (Caldey): a tint of Kings Blue Pale with Cadmium Green, and (Tenby) with Kings Blue Pale, Naples Yellow, touch of Light Pink. Viridian, Permanent Mauve and Cadmium Yellow/Lemon for the gorse.
Brush: Sizes 4 & 10 filbert (bristle); size 2 and 00 round (synthetic).
Hope you like the painting,
Watson Jones: our three yr old cairn terrier. When I first took him on this walk he was a smaller bundle of about three months old and every step dwarfed him. Nowadays WJ is in charge of the picnic and hip flask, and has an online Quartermaster’s store.
