Laugharne Castle & Tree

Laugharne Castle & Tree

And as I see one here's another. Both castles are quite close to each other. Laugharne Castle makes a great subject and there's so much of it to paint. Well done again.

Thank you Gwynfor, I have been holidaying in Pembrokeshire for 8 consequetive years (despite the weather) and years on and off since the 90s. I used to go to Conwy in the North before that. I prefer Pembrokeshire as it is less commercial and has great disabled accessibility. I have been able to enjoy both Laugharne and Carew, which I love. I've been to many others and hope to paint more of them. I have also painted the Green Bridge Nr Merron/Castlemartin. I have a love affair with Wales.

OIL PASTEL 16 x 12 ins On watercolour paper treated with Gesso then prepared with home made ground of gesso with marble dust. This is from a photo I took the year we went inside this fabulous castle. From the estuary below it looks tall ind imposing but when you go up the hill and inside it appears to be level. If you look over the wall on the right you see across the estuary and a huge drop below. Behind the tree is a summer house where many writers including Dylan Thomas sat to write while looking out to sea. I loved the tree so much as its trunk twists and coils and its branches reach out across towards the sea. A very serene and beautiful place. I just had to paint it. My companion's sister loved it so much she decided to buy it and I need to get it framed up for her.
