mid wales

Weekend away in wales staying at a friends house… really lucky with weather which was mostly clear skies with heavy overnight frosts. The light about as good as we could have hoped for. My outdoor gear is the best I’ve ever had and meaning that aside from the hands I didn’t suffer from the cold at all.

The velvet mosses over the hanging oak and birch woods were one highlight… with the nuthatches and treecreepers seeming like fairytale creatures.

The dippers in the fast flowing water were the other central  protagonists. I hope to go back and make some paintings on the ground… don’t think I’ll get that light and clarity for a while though.
