Thanks for your comment Colin. You may like to know that this painting will be on show during the whole of June at the Royal Cambrian Academy in Conwy. I have an exhibition there with 30 or so pictures. Hopefully you'll find time to drop in. Cheers, Harry.

The rivers and waterfalls in the Betws-y-Coed area are stunning. I know about them as I live here. This picture does illustrate very accurately what the real life fall is like. < ahref="http://betws-y-coed.net">Betws-y-Coed

Dripping Springs, TX - United States

Thank you very much for your comment. I've been looking at your work, and I am very flattered that you like one of my landscape paintings! I especially love your oil sketches. Some almost drift into enticing abstracts. Very, very nice use of color and composition!

Thanks for the complement Harry, it means something coming from you. Looking at your paintings makes me want to get out my fly rod. When I was younger I used to try and fish and paint at the same time. Interesting name, reminds me of Bryn Mahr. Any idea of the origin?

Wonderful, great painting Harry!

Thank you for the comment on my painting, Over the Rocks. My eyes were drawn to this painting of yours and I love the realism you accomplished. I had a sense of actually being there. Great piece of art!

Description

I've driven past this site many times on the way into Snowdonia, before I stopped here and wandered around. Again, this is another site where, looking around, one is a little overwhelmed by the visual possibilities. Every direction you look, there is a potentially decent painting waiting for you. Scary.

For all that we owe a debt to the Romantics for changing our view of the wilder parts of nature, I still feel that Betws, in particular, has suffered by too many paintings which have over-sentimentalised it. I find the outlook of the Romantics (the painters and the poets) to be a little too grandiose for my taste. Too much overt emoting. I prefer the stance of the 19th century Liverpool school of painters, who approached painting in a more understated way.

I think it's always best to paint what you see, and let the emotion look after itself. Restraint rather than emotional carte blanche.
