Can't recall if I've been to Rhayader, years ago probably, but I was passing through Llandrindod Wells this summer (stopped there for lunch).
Your painting looks very wintery Welsh, particularly with the misty hills and wet road. Lovely detail and scaling of houses too. Well done.

hey Andrew!
nice to hear from you again,i hope it means you've been outside swinging that brush!
yes Rhayadar is not very far from Llandod,the Elan valley is close as well..a painting paradise.

You are making me want to come to Wales to paint (in the summer of course).

rob ijbema said...

It's dark here in the Pacific Northwest too. Gorgeous painting! One can almost feel the cold damp day.

Hey Rob,

I like all your paintings (yes it's true :-)

But.....i really think you need a hair cut (ik weet niet hoe ik het anders neer moet zetten, ik bedoel dat je nodig je haar moet laten knippen :-) )
