The Bridge in Our Wake, Watercolor of the Llangollen Canal by Jenny Armitage

The Bridge in Our Wake (watercolor 15 x 19) $1000 framed; $900 unframed

This is the beautifully rural Llangollen Canal, near Llangollen, Wales.  As you can see from the wake, I took the reference photos for this painting looking back over the stern of our little narrowboat.   To be ridiculously specific, this Bridge 36W looking back towards Trevor Basin on the last leg of our journey to Llangollen itself.  Its idyllic up there.

Framed in brushed gold metal with white mat.

The Bones of Dinas Bran

The Bones of Dinas Bran, Original Watercolor Painting by Jenny Armitage

The Bones of Dinas Bran (watercolor 19 x 23) $1200 framed; $1000 unframed

This  is bits and pieces of what’s left of Castell Dinas Bran, sometimes referred to as  Crow’s Fortress or Crow Castle.  The castle was probably built  sometime in the 1260s by Gruffydd II ap Madog, making it the only Welsh Castle we visited to actually have been built by the Welsh.   The castle is now an evocative ruin perched on the hilltop above Llangollen.

We walked a mile or so up to see it after having moored within sight of it the night before.  It’s a powerful sight whether seen from above or below.

Framed in copper-brown brushed metal with a white mat.

Late Afternoon Denbighshire, Original Landscape by Jenny Armitage

Late Afternoon Denbighshire (watercolor 17 x 23) framed $1100; unframed $1000

We are just back from a narrowboating trip on the Llangollen Canal in North Wales.  Paradoxically, we spent much of our week’s boat rental walking on dry land both along the canal and into the countryside.  This particular walk was along part of the Offa’s Dyke Path just a few miles west of Chirk Marina.  The typical slate farmhouse in the mid-ground was visible for most of our late afternoon walk. 

Framed in brushed pewter metal frame with white mat.

A Few Alcohol Ink Mini Paintings

These are my very first alcohol ink paintings. The process is fast and exciting if not exactly controllable. Each of these paintings was completed in under thirty minutes working on Yupo with an eyedropper, cotton ball, cotton swab, gravity, and a mister. The good news it creates beautiful glowing results almost by magic. The bad news is that over half the painting made this way are fit only for the trash. These are the winners:

I drive through Albany on my way to Art in the Valley several times a month.  Crossing over the railway bridge I admire the trains, but there’s no place to pull over and stop.  So last month, I made a point of pulling into the station and walking up the bridge to photograph the trains.   I may do it again at a different time of day.
