Mwnt
Media: Prismacolor Colored Pencils, Strathmore Artagain paper, Acrylic, 12" x 18"
Since moving to West Wales, I've been exploring the local area and loving the stunning landscape and scenery here. I never thought I would be any good at landscape art or even have much of an interest in creating art like this. But after starting with Pentre Ifan I find I'm able to bring my own unique flare to this subject matter, bring in my love of colour, pattern and sparkles; drawing from a lifetime of looking across vast landscapes of mountains, moors and vales. 
Unfortunately the scanning of this piece doesn't quite capture the layers and layers of coloured pencil I use in this technique which as a result, changes quite remarkably depending on how the light catches it.
Mwnt is a very small community and ancient parish in south Ceredigion, Wales, on the West Wales coast about 4.5 miles (7.2 km) from Cardigan. It lies on the Ceredigion Coast Path. It gets its name from the prominent steep conical hill (Foel y Mwnt), a landmark from much of Cardigan Bay, that rises above the beach to a height of 76m (249ft), and was formerly anglicised as Mount.
