A view of Porthgain Harbour, Pembrokeshire

I have been getting around to working up some drawings and watercolour after a summer holiday in Wales. Surprisingly we got away with only one day’s rain – and this mostly around St. David’s.

The rain didn’t do much to keep the hoards of tourists away from the UK’s smallest city and what is there to do on a wet day but to traipse around between shops, teashops and pubs – if you can get in. Much better to get out – either into the surrounding countryside ( which is glorious ) or, in my case, along the coast to Porthgain, to visit this former industrial port and hope it is quieter.

Well, it wasn’t – and a fair few other people had the same idea – and they got to the cafe’s and pub first! Still its good to have a look around the harbour and then return the next day when the rain had stopped.

So, back to the artwork – this is my take on a view from the steps at the end of the harbour, looking back inland. There is some great scenery along the Pembrokeshire coastal path and maybe someday I might get to walk some more of it!
