Snowdon from Porthmadoc


The above watercolour painting of Snowdon from Porthmadoc sold today. We have been going to North Wales on and off  for at least 35-40 years and I think every time we have passed over the Cob at Porthmadoc there have been cattle in the fields by the river. (I know of course they cant be there all the time as it floods and the cattle are taken in in poor weather). The cob/seawall and  causeway was built in about 1811 by William Maddocks and it was as a result of this that the town and harbour became established .
Today I have been making a large toy chest for one of the grandson's birthday. It will take a couple of days so painting is off the agenda.
