Welcome to Postcards from Pembrokeshire (188/365)
Today’s Postcard: Caldey punt in Tenby harbour
Watching a small and pretty cift dog running in soft, spongy sand shouldn’t be funny after five minutes but maybe that says more about me than it does about humour. Anyway one very happy (and now extremely asleep dog) and I wandered around the north beach in Tenby, from harbour to the far end and back via the driftwood detritus hard up by the arches. I prefer low tide for boats because there are colours in the pools that are subtle (and, I find, pretty elusive). Like trying to describe the inside of a rolling marble or a flying bubble in low sun.
Paint: (on my Ritec Red homemade earth paint): sketched in with Burnt Umber, and then the following in now particular discreet area: Blu Turchese, Cobalt Blue, Kings Blue Pale; Cadmium Green Pale and Viridian; Flesh Tint and Titanium White. A scrape of a barnacle and the smell of a gull’s wing.
Brush: Sizes 2 & 6 filbert (bristle); size 2 and 00 round (synthetic).
Hope you like the painting,
