Artisans Corner at Christmas I'm focusing on bringing new artwork in for Christmas, going through my old sketch books and framing up some of the original pen & watercolour studies. These were made in many lovely locations in Wales, and I'm hoping they bring back lovely memories for you as much as they do for me. This is one features a traditional canal barge moored on the Llangollen Canal. As I sat there quietly painting I saw the owner emerge dressed in an immacuate pin-stripe suit and pushing a bicycle.. He put on his cycle clips and cycled off to down the towpath. Awesome!
Tretower Court from the Medieval Garden, an original pen & watercolour study made in the shade of a Mulberry Tree hung with tempting ripe red fruit. The Garden has a covered walkway to protect the fair skins of the court ladies from the sun and is planted with flowers and herbs for medicines, strewing, dyeing and cooking. Tretower Court has has an overwhelming feeling of peace and tranquility and was a great favourite with my Landscape Summer School students.
This charming metal seat was in Abbey Court Gardens near Dore Abbey in Gwent, another favourite with my Hill College Landscape Summer School students. It combined a well-stocked, beautifully designed garden with a small arboretum accessed by a little footbridge over a river that flowed though the site. It included a pretty cafe with home-made cakes and a well-stocked nursery and we all left with our cars bulging with plants and shrubs.
