Industrial Scribbling

Sunshine all day – yaayyy Summer at last. ‘The Industrial Valley’ is the theme for an exhibition coming up in the Autumn for members of Swansea Print Workshop. Some of us are organising a series of drawing days to do preliminary studies for this and today a small group of printmakers went up the Dulais Valley to the National Trust site at Aberdulais Falls, one of the first areas to be developed during the Industrial Revolution. I normally run a mile from doing landscapes but I need to push out of my comfort zone and stop being lazy. Two ink sketches in my A5 cloth-bound sketchbook and a piece in oilbars, onto A2 stretched paper prepared with multi-coloured washes of acrylic paint.
