Sharon Whitley's Challenge this month is of Cwm Idwal and the photo was taken by Gary Jones.  What a spectacular view, it fer takes yer breath away!  Although it is so awesome I felt that it wouldn't make a good painting.   However, when I got stuck in (very technical artistic term) I really enjoyed it.   I decided to use a limited palette of french ultramarine, burnt sienna and raw sienna, and, unusual for me, is painted small only 29cm x 20 cm.

I couldn't resist putting the real photograph taken by Gary.  How lucky to be able to walk so high and capture such breathtaking beauty. I thank Sharon for using this pic and for Gary for sharing this beautiful view.  Brings back memories  walks that I did way back that took my breath away.
