Welcome to Postcards from Pembrokeshire (270/365)
Today’s Postcard: Castle at Carew
This is the perfect light in which to pretend to be an Impressionist: some low sun (blink and you’ll miss it), purple-y shadows, warm edges. In a cold breeze. Temporarily it’s a light beloved by Monet when he went south or, closer to home (and climate) Alfred Sisley painting in Penarth. Apologies for brevity of blog but it’s Friday evening and Watson Jones is making pizza….
Paint: (on my Ritec Red homemade earthy paint): sky of Kings Blue Pale, some Titanium White, touch of Light Pink. Castle of Permanent Mauve with some Naples Yellow for the sunny strips…Kings Blue Deep and Lapis Lazuli in the water, Viridian and Ivory Black for the ivy-ed hedge.
Brush: Sizes 4 and 6 filbert (hog); size 2 round (synthetic).
Watson Jones: 4 yr old cairn; pizzaiolo supremo, scruffy sommelier. Bonne weekend tout le monde!
