Painting in Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire

A windswept Aberyswyth on the Welsh coast also rather reminded me of Eastbourne, with its rocky beach and long dark groynes stretching into the waves.

The long lines of the shore gave the opportunity for lots of lovely fluid work in acrylic, with the overcast sky and drama of the waves rolling in across the rocks.

Then a really beautiful sunny morning found me working on the coast around Dinas Head in Newport.

The beautiful blue skies continued down to Fishguard.  The sun caught the little boats in the harbour, making everything bright and colourful, with beautiful reflections.

Lastly, after visits to Broad Haven and Little Haven,  it was over to Haverfordwest, with the mysterious, brooding outline of Wolf Castle on the horizon.
