Welcome to Postcards from Pembrokeshire (173/365)
Today’s Postcard: Golden crocuses
Every five minutes the season changed: sunny spring-like sparks bounced between moss and ferns; then a dour cloud obliterated the corona of a crocus and turned the calendar back to mid-winter. But crocuses are like mini lighthouses, illuminating corners and banks from nowhere, suddenly filling banks and borders.
Paint: (on my Ritec Red homemade earth paint): Dark inky background of Permanent Mauve and Ivory Black; Cadmium Green Pale and Viridian beneath the Cadmium Yellow and Alizarin mix for the crocuses.
Brush: Size 2 filbert (bristle); sizes 2 & 4 round (synthetic).
Hope you like the painting,
