Broadhaven


The painting above is of Broadhaven and is one I finished last week. I know another sheep dog. For a change I used cerulean blue as my blue. Cerulean blue is interesting in that it is not one particular hue or at least it wasn't.
Its equivalent in Welsh would have been glas. It was initially a blue made form copper or cobalt compounds and had a greenish tinge. Latterly it is made from pigment and can be spelt coerulean. It can move towards viridian when mixed with a good trace of yellow.
Anyway Broadhaven is a nice spot and one we often walk to when stopping in Pembrokeshire. The walk from Druidstone along the coastal path is spectacular giving views across St Brides Bay and takes you passed an iron age hill fort.
