Sandy beach in Aberdyfi / Aberdovey, Wales, UK by Linandara

A little picturesque village along the beach and on the hillside (nicknamed by kids Balamory), river estuary, white sails and a terrific view. Our favourite beach in the area. The original painting have been done on a warm september day in 2008, during low tide, while kids were busy splashing in shallow warm pools. Quite a lot of beach sand turned out to be incorporated in the picture…
After selling the original picture I played a bit with color to make this print more “impressionist”

I made yet another beach sketch in Mundesley, Norfolk (I love the place!) when we were on holidays. But that’s about it. I haven’t had a chance to work much on my commissions or in fact any other serious job partly because of school holidays, partly because a strip of bad luck. First, my smartphone broke down and I lost quite a lot of data (look here if you want to avoid my mistake in Windows Outlook: http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.outlook.contacts&mid=b4b0cc4a-e9ca-437c-a816-55e8a036f5f9 ). Second, my son got ill with a cold or something else. Third we had a pipe leak in the middle of kitchen celling. Plus a gloomy weather & economic situation. Plus my husband radio interview got cancelled. There probably was something else, I can’t remember right now.

Anyway, we had some fun on Firework night:

Here are two more samples of my recent oil pastels. Both A4, resulted from random encounters on the Web. The landscape “Warm Lake” has been sold on Ebay for about 10 quid. The nude is still available from Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16271026).
