Sketching in Presteigne Wales
Just come back from a lovely holiday in the Welsh Valleys staying in a cottage in the quirky village of Presteigne. The weather was pretty wet most of the time so I didn't get much chance to sketch apart from a couple of brighter evenings. A rusty old motorbike caught my eye parked against a wall by a cottage. Whilst I was sketching a lady came to put her bins out and saw me sketching. She said the bike was her husbands and she wanted to buy my sketch for his birthday which again was a lovely surprise. On the opposite side of the road is a wonderful wild garden in front of a large front door which I couldn't resist sketching.
