Oil Painting on Canvas 16″ x 12″

Another scene, I guess, influenced by my time in Snowdonia. Such a beautiful terrain. Not far from where I lived was a picturesque village, nestled in the mountains, called Beddgelert. In that village there was a quaint little souvenir shop dedicated to ‘Rupert Bear‘. For those who don’t know he’s a comic strip character that I really enjoyed the annuals of as a child. Anyway one of the features of those books I most remember are the beautiful illustrations. Simple but magical. There have been several illustrators who have continued the work of original artist Mary Tourtel so I don’t remember if it was her but probably Alfred Bestall, who lived in nearby Porthmadog, who was so greatly influenced by the local landscape. 

The steep, forested and rocky slopes interlaced with meandering footpaths, streams and waterfalls create so many enchanted places beauty and magic. I must get back there soon with my camera.

This painting was again painted ‘wet on wet’ using oil paint on canvas.
