Inspiration

Sea and Shore - We have access to the beautiful Cardigan Bay. Sweeping Bays and stony remote beaches. Crashing waves and atmospheric sky's. Georgian Harbours, piers and proms. Seabirds, dolphins, seals and seashells. There's plenty to inspire.

Pastures
Pengwernydd Farm is surrounded by pastures grazed by our cattle and sheep. At different times of year we have a variety of wild flowers and grasses. The foxgloves will be flowering in the early summer and the livestock will be out in the fields. The artist can choose to 'home in' on the detail or incorporate the wider surroundings and grazing animals.

Llantrisant Church, Trisant
Overlooking Pengwernydd Farm, the little church is set on a hill top and commands stunning views over moorland and farmland dotted with remote cottages. The viewpoint can be the church and its ancient stones or the wider surrounding area.

Mountains and Red Kites
In the upland pastures of Pengwernydd Farm, we have amazing views across the Cambrian Mountains. Red Kites and Buzzards call and swoop in the skies above the farm. A rocky crag stands as a sentinel over the miners' cottages below and there is also a lake we can take inspiration from.

Romantic Ruins
The surrounding fields are dotted with ruined buildings left over from the mining. The 'romantic ruin', a little piece of history, a glimpse into the past that has inspired many artists over time.

Animal Sketching
The animals on the farm make great life models, from the chickens to the horse. Sketching, then develop your ideas futher.

Waterfalls, Myths and Tales
Steep wooded hills, dotted with ancient hillforts, are cut by plunging watercourses. Experience a landscape steeped in history and legend. Look for evidence of past lives. Imagine the journeys made by pilgrims and monks. And then there's Hafod......... Be Inspired!

Thoroughly enjoyable.

I stayed in pontrhydygroes, what an amazing place with stunning views, to get your inspiration going, it was fab. Anita is the most helpful, patient tutor there is, and trust me she needed to be patient with me as I was a complete novice to the art world. Highly recommend this workshop. Can't wait to return

I was staying near by Pengwernydd Farm when someone told me about Anita's workshop. I like to "dabble" so I booked in for the day. I am a beginner but with Anita's expertise and patience I came away feeling that I had achieved something. I met Margaret (farm owner) and she kindly showed me round her cottages. I booked my 2015 holiday accommodation there and then also a couple of workshops with Anita, she said as I would there as a resident if I wanted to do any more I could just slot in whenever. Can't get anymore relaxing than that and really looking forward to my holiday.

I embarked on this course as a complete novice. Anita took the to show me the basics and I now feel confident enough to have a go! I particularly enjoyed working in the beautiful surroundings in the Cambrian Mountains. It's really nice to go somewhere so beautiful that hasn't become too touristy. A fun and enjoyable day, I really feel that I have taken some new skills home with me. I intend to do another course as soon as time permits.

-

I thoroughly enjoyed the Art Course tutored by Anita Woods. I was taught to paint with watercolours and was very pleased with the results. I would recommend this workshop to anyone of any ability.
