Saint Elvis And The Scratch

2 Jan

0201 scratch

Husb and I visited some friends in Pembrokeshire today and went walking in the beautiful Presceli countryside. It was chilly but the sunshine was glorious. We passed some fat fluffy horses and I was worried that one of them had caught its tail in a fence. But my country friends explained that it was just scratching its backside on the wire. I’m such a Townie!

The Presceli Mountains are reckoned to be the origin of Elvis Presley’s family name and there is a church dedicated to Saint Elvis in the area. Saint Elvis is believed to have baptised Saint David, the patron saint of Wales.

I drew this with graphite then inked in with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen size M. I drew into my little Khadi handmade paper sketchbook that I had precoloured with a wet teabag.
