It must have been about eleven years ago, just before I left Wales to move to London. I was giving a painting workshop at the Glanusk Estate, which is about two miles from Crickhowell (The Magical Town of Crickadoon). Situated in the beautiful Usk Valley with the River Usk running through, it was the perfect setting for a summer idyll.
It was one of those golden days…when everything comes together to form a moment of magic.
I was set up next to the River Usk where children were frolicking between the rocks and trees. They could have been little water nymphs.
I knew that I had to try and capture that moment and to do so meant working almost instinctively….and of course rapidly.
Rapid watercolour – capturing the essence of a moment in time.
I hope everyone enjoys a moment of magic this summer.
You did indeed capture the moment. Had me remembering days in Wales when I mucked about in the River Glaslyn. All that joy that children find in rocks and a river and getting horribly wet.
Yes the simple pleasures of life are always the best….something we sometimes forget as we get older – have a lovely weekend. Janet. 🙂
As always, there is a lovely vibrancy in the painting, and like Tish, this brings back memories of when we used to go on camping holidays in Wales when I was a boy and “mucking around” by the river took up a large part of every day. Lovely memories 🙂
Oh lovely memories indeed. I still love mucking around by rivers:) Have a lovely weekend. Janet
I can imagine the woods with a river flowing.
