Tryfan with Llyn Caseg-fraith (Pastel)
During a recent poll of readers of Trail magazine Tryfan was voted Britain's favourite mountain. Looks good from every angle and sandwiched between Siabod and Y Carneddau the views are spectacular.

This painting will form part of my display during the Helfa Gelf Art Trail which will be open to the public during the last three weekends in September.

No leaves and dampness in the air, but it's only a painting

Autumn tracks (Pastel)

The leaves have all gone and it's muddy underfoot. Autumn is here but only in a painting.See it, listen to it squelch and feel the cold air on your face. Experience the picture during the studio tour in September.

Melting snow for Helfa Gelf 2014

Snow on a wall (Pastel/Watercolour)

I like snow and I also like dry stone walls, the snow didn't stick around very long this year so I had to be quick. The sun is low in the sky and illuminates the wall from the side with a pinky light. What little heat there has been from the sun during the day has all but gone, it will soon be dark.

This painting can be seen as part of Helfa Gelf when I open my studio for the last three weekends in September.

Helfa Gelf Open Studios 2014

Once again, for three weekends in September I will be taking part in the Helfa Gelf Art TrailNow in its ninth year, this free annual event is spread right across North Wales with studios taking part in Gwynedd, Conwy, Flintshire, Denbighshire and Wrexham. It is a unique chance for visitors to peek behind the scenes, experience this normally hidden world and get to chat to the artists and crafts people about their creative process.
