Day 24 of the 30 day painting challenge…. WOW! I didn’t think I would make it this far.
As of today we are 80% of the way through the challenge, can you believe it? 🙂
Today we are stopping off at a beautiful place. Make sure you have your hiking boots though, as it is quite a walk! (and it involves climbing as well). Please bring a backpack with some water too, and there is a place for a picnic, so why not just sit and enjoy the scenery and have a little picnic?!
My painting for today is:
This painting was lots of fun! I am just getting the hang of acrylic paints. I have jumped right in and started using watercolor for this challenge and also I have decided that some of my paintings I would use acrylic. Well, I also bought some molding paste and have used it on a few of my paintings. So I take the paste and place a thin layer and let it dry and keep layering it until it is as thick as I want it, and then I paint the painting. The paste in the painting gives my art a 3-D look 🙂
I have been wanting to go to Fairy Glen for many years, ever since I drove by it, and we were not able to stop. Well, when we decided to go to Wales for our wedding anniversary (10 years!) then I made a list of places we were definitely going to see… St. Winefride’s Well was on the list, Bodnant Garden, and Fairy Glen…. along with the others but THESE THREE were a MUST SEE for me.
Fairy Glen is “Ffos Noddun” in Welsh which means “Deep Ditch”.
Fairy Glen is so lovely, I was so excited to get to see it. And when you drive up the road to it, (or walk) you can definitely imagine fairies living there. Or are you imagining? 🙂
Fairy Glen is near Betws-y-coed.
This is a really good video of Fairy Glen.
Here are a few sites:
After walking a while, we can sit and rest 🙂
I hope you have enjoyed the visit to Fairy Glen and I hope you will take the time to go and visit, it is so lovely. You may just find a couple of little fairies flying around 🙂
On the way we saw large quartz stones and also flint just lying on the ground.
Check it out!
See you tomorrow,
