"Canal in Wales", 8x10, Pastel on board

The canals in Wales are so beautiful - what fun it would be to have a vacation on one of these canal boats!  Certainly something on my list of things I hope to do someday!  This was a fun one to paint - you can view it with a zoom on Daily Paintworks.

Cotswold Cottage, Pastel on board, 8x10

Here is a painting of a cottage that we came upon in the Cotswolds.  It was at the intersection of three small back roads.  Where the roads met, there was a venerable old oak tree.  Underneath that oak is where I was standing when I took the photos that I used for this painting.  The cottage was so unbelievably quaint, and all by itself in such a beautiful setting.

Beach Huts in Wales, Colored Pencil on board, 5x7

My husband and I came across these beach huts while on vacation on the Llyn Peninsula of Northern Wales.  Although the town where we were staying was very busy, the beach was almost empty even though it was July.  I loved this part of Wales and hope to go back someday!
Currently on auction at Daily Paint Works - you can bid here.
Thanks for looking!
