WET WET WET


Again looking back to February when things were so different.

Three days down in south Wales and the weather there was less than kind.

However in spite of the wind and rain we managed to get out and see some wonderful castles, coastlines, villages, and fields. 

And when the Sun did break through it was absolutely gorgeous. It was remarkable in its transformatory power: turning the oil refinery in Pembroke Dock into a horizon of minarets and cupolas. 

I felt I came back with material (drawings and photographs) for at least seven paintings.

Probably the most exciting drawing was one made on  West Beach, Angle. I took three minutes as a storm blew across the beach. 

I got absolutely soaked and almost blown away. However the feeling of making marks in a force eight gale was priceless.
