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.

    You capture structures and landscapes so well, no one would even suspect you try to run from the experience. They are lovely! 🙂

      Thank you, I have to work hard at it, it’s easier to draw people 🙂

    I love industrial landscapes, especially when nature has won the battle. I love all three of your pieces!

    A couple of the people you’ve drawn look just like buildings!
