David Bellamy–14th July 2012 Demonstration and New Book
“Deep in the heart of Mid-Wales, where the sylvan Wye glides serenely,
swirling, gurgling, then tumbling over a rocky bed, the resident heron
stands statuesque: you might even see the Mole and Ratty scull past, or if you are quiet and really lucky one of the legendary Llandoddies, the water-folk of Llandrindod, might appear. Beside this Arcadian idyll stands the Erwood Station Craft Centre, a delightful spot on a summer’s day where you can tarry awhile, indulge in tea and cakes, examine the paintings and crafts in this Aladin’s Cave of delights, and take a gentle walk beside the river to view the above attractions.
On Saturday 14th July
I shall be demonstrating how to inject atmosphere and
light into your paintings, and creating interesting skies from 2pm onwards.
I shall also be signing copies of my new book, Skies, Light & Atmosphere,
which has an associated DVD of the same name, and we will have a special
offer on these.
The demonstration is free, but we are asking folk to give a modest donation
to the Welsh Air Ambulance and the Help for Heroes charities. Erwood Station
Craft Centre is on the site of the old station nearly a mile north of Erwood
Village and on the east side of the river Wye, just off the A470 south of
Builth Wells. It is well signposted.
Do come along, but if you have a large group please let Michael Cunningham
know in advance on 01982 560674 so that he can prepare.” – David Bellamy
