Builth Wells


oil on panel 6x9"


it is never easy adjusting to the snow
the light and contrasts are so different
today was a lot more bearable than yesterday
so nice to stand there in the sun and snow
things are really quiet...

This really evokes the atmosphere you get after a heavy snowfall. It's nice if you don't have to go anywhere!

A beautiful scene, I love this painting. I have always been fascinated by Wales.

Keep up the great work!
