Welcome to Postcards from Pembrokeshire! Croeso i'r gardiau bost o'r Sir Penfro! (apologies for the clumsy Welsh but I'm still learning...)
I am painting a new Postcard every day for at least the next year (wish me luck...gulp).
I could use quick drying acrylics, but I'm a bit old fashioned so it's sticky, gooey, unpredictable, dry-when-they-feel-like-it gorgeous oil paints for me. I paint en plein air outside, in situ, or in my draughty studio/shed (emphasis on the latter) which my poor wife and I built last December in a fine wet'n'Welsh sou'westerly. Well those days between Christmas and New Year's need filling with something.... in this case tarpaulin-grappling excitement and some not very festive comments.
Anyway for my first daily Postcard blog I have chosen to share a painting from Caldey Island, a little piece of breezy heaven off Tenby Sound in Pembrokeshire. My wife and I recently spent a few magical days there listening to the waves, watching the seals and wondering if our rather meagre ration of wine would be enough.
