Loggerheads... with the Rambling Artist

A different day off today, no long walk in the mountains, no wildlife photography day but instead I had a most wonderful morning on a gentle stroll around Loggerheads with Sharon, which is at the foot of our favourite local place, Moel Famau. Sharon is quickly becoming an amazing watercolour artist, and as well as producing some amazing pieces from a lot of my photographs, she has started doing more paintings 'plein air' and today she quickly painted two watercolours on our wanderings. All her work is for sale either originals or prints, and more of her work can be seen on her site HERE She often says that I am biased, but I think her work is amazing, so if you have a few moments pop across to her site and see what you think.

The old stone bridge over the River Alyn, the subject of her first painting

Big fish in the rivers in Wales!!!


Sharon stopped me on this path and said she would like to paint the view down the path, again I sat in awe and watched her produce a lovely watercolour

  1. Sounded like you'd been having a row with Sharon in your title, doesn't look like you'd ever do that in the header pic of the pair of you.

    With reference to your comments in the previous post re 'dad' and the 'love of your life'....chin up Gary.

  2. Your Sharon is clearly very talented Gary. Maybe she could get you into painting birds as well as photographing them.

    1. been there Phil.... and quickly realised I'll stick to photographing them!!!

  3. Beautiful scenery! You two are so lucky to share it with each other like this.


Thanks for dropping by, any comments you may have are greatly appreciated.
