Beddgelert is my newly finished oil painting on canvas.
Inspiration came from one of my own photographs taken whilst staying on holiday in the little picturesque village of Beddgelert in 2013.
Beddgelert is a village in the Snowdonia area of Gwynedd, North Wales. The old stone bridge with it's two arches stands in the centre of the village and crosses the River Colwyn.
The little village was thriving with visitors the day i took the photo! Most of them queuing up for ice cream at the fantastic ice cream shop with it's many flavours! Yes, we did visit once or twice whilst we were there! :)
Painting this scene really took me back there, i can hear the sounds of the river water, birds tweeting, and of course the chatter of the people as they decide on which ice cream to have!
