Llanddew ~ St David's day

Here is a watercolour I did of Llanddew Church. I thought it was appropriate for St. David’s Day. ( Llanddew meaning St David’s Church). Llanddew is just outside Brecon and is a lovely little community.

For me watercolours are best when they are simple. Everything is synthesised or reduced to the minimum whilst retaining the whole essence of the scene.

Hopefully the watercolour above achieves this.

We used to live in Brecon and so we feel a great affection for the area. It remains as yet unspoilt but I am not holding my breath.

Today we have the grand children and shopping along with some domestic chores and I feel it is unlikely I will have the opportunity to pick up a brush.
