Welcome to Postcards from Pembrokeshire (258/365)
Today’s Postcard: St Issells and cherry blossoms
The forecast was poor and the race was on. On our wooded walk Watson Jones played his part eloquently by barking at everything, disappearing into the thickest thickets and only reappearing when his snack radar twitched. Eventually we got back in time for WJ’s homemade marmalade (thick cut) on toast (ditto). Then off to St Issells church for the last of the blossoms and the last of the dry weather for a day or so. And here we are. Just about beat the congregation.
Paint: (on my Ritec Red homemade earthy paint): dark bits with Viridian and Burnt Umber; church tower (sunny side up) is Naples Yellow, Permanent Mauve for the darker side. Greens are Oxide of Chromium, Light Green and Cadmium Pale, blossoms of Alizarin and Light Pink with some Titanium White, sky mainly T.White plus some Blu Turchese tint.
Brush: Size 6 filbert (hog); size 2 round (synthetic).
I hope that you like the painting,
Watson Jones: cairn terrier (nearly 4 yrs old); possessor of uncanny sixth sense for adventure (aka going off on his own at not-very-good-times). Hedge laying award (bronze).
