The Gorsedd Circle

Husb and I had another long walk in the late summer sunshine this afternoon, stopping for a rest at the Gorsedd Stones in Singleton Park. It’s a tradition in Wales that the annual National Eisteddfod (the arts festival) erects a stone circle on each Eisteddfod site. The Eisteddfod moves around every year so there are many Gorsedd Circles now all over Wales. This one was erected in Swansea in 1925, the very first was in Aberdare in 1861. There’s a flat ‘Logan’ stone in the centre and that’s where I sat to do this quick sketch into my tiny A6 spotty sketchbook with Faber Castell Pitt pens, size S and M.
