Just Another Stone In The Wall

20 May

Here’s a quick video of me out drawing recently, one of the standing stones I’ve been visiting this year on a mission to draw many of the ancestral monuments on the Trail of the Boar Hunt (Y Twrch Trwyth), an ancient Welsh legend from The Mabinogion. It’s an unusual stone in a wall at Ysbyty Cynfyn in Ceredigion and it’s the star of this short film. And I’m in there doing a bit of scribbling too.

Just another stone in the wall…..

I’m travelling around South West Wales with archaeologist Dewi Bowen who is researching his new book on Neolithic / Bronze Age monuments. His previous book on the stones of Ancient Siluria (South East Wales) can be found here. Accompanying us is film maker Melvyn Williams who is recording a documentary about our experiences. Some of Melvyn’s short films can be seen here. I’m currently working on a series of expressive drawings of ancestral sites and if you want to see some of my other artworks, please click here.

    This is cool. Looks amazing how the stone outgrows of the wall. 🙂

      Thanks Michael. I absolutely hate being on camera, cringing. Our film maker has loads of footage of these places, so interesting, it’s great getting out there and seeing them.

        I find it fascinating to see and hear artists working. Really inspiring, I think.

        Thank you. It’s stream of consciousness stuff as I am in the moment
