Watercolour: A snowy gateway in Wales 水彩画:威尔士雪景中的大门



This watercolor was the subject of a television program I made while filming in Wales. It is the gateway to a wonderful lodge, now a hotel, owned by an artist who was the designer of a famous TV series, Fawlty Towers. I must say he in no way acts like the dreadful Basil Fawlty. It was in summer time but I changed it to a winter scene – one of the great advantages of painting. So let’s get started!
