A personal angle for Anglesey

Earlier this year in April we went to Angelsey in North Wales for the very first time. What a thrill! 

Fantastic painting opportunities everywhere in a diverse and magnificent landscape.

Whilst there we visited Oriel Ynys Môn gallery at  Llangefni to stand in awe in front of one of my art hero's work - Sir John “Kyffin” Williams, (KBE, RA) which was as expected, jaw dropping!

Staying in a beautiful cottage at Church Bay the sea was just a stones throw away and needless to say, the brushes, paint and fabulous Canson watercolour and pastel papers came with me to paint down at the beach and in different locations around this beautiful island.

Here's just one of those paintings recently photographed.

Watch out Anglesey here we come...ASAP!
