Painting


It's a wonderful morning here in Conwy and I should be out enjoying the sunshine as i have done all week, but I needed to prepare a page for one of the SerenTex books. I decided to paint this cockerel, I used acrylic paint and took up my paintbrush for the first time in many years and thoroughly enjoyed it. I need to develop this idea and produce something stitchy perhaps or maybe a collage? I'm definitely

going to continue playing with this theme in one of my journals.

Gathering mussels and a backbreaking job on such a lovely morning.


It must be a wonderful morning for a Sightseeing Cruise on the river.
The castle in the sunshine. The greens are spectacular.
The other half of Conwy Castle yesterday morning with around a dozen men working on the walls. It should soon be without scaffolding once again.

That is a very handsome cockerel and I could just enjoy a river cruise in weather like this.

I take it the scaffolding is just for restoration purposes. I too love the greens and look forward to more artwork with your cockerel.

Thanks Heather. It's from a photo I took last Summer and i need to look up a few more taken the same day. I walked over to Conwy this afternoon and was tempted to take a cruise myself, but my decision was influenced by the tide!

Hello Dolores! Thanks for commenting. Yes the scaffolding is just up while they restore part of the walls. This is the first time I have seen work done on the castle in all the time I've lived here.

That bird has his beady eye on something, a hen perhaps ! Lovely little painting.

You are right Sue, he did have his eye on a hen. :)
