The Lido

blackpill 2016

I had a meeting today so we took advantage of the extraordinary dry and sunny weather to go al fresco at Blackpill Lido, half way between the city centre and Mumbles. I met up with my fellow artists Sylvie Evans and Graham Parker to hatch some plans for the future of our artist collective, 15 Hundred Lives. Of course I had a scribble; there were loads of people enjoying the sun, supping tea at the Junction cafe, playing in the paddling pool, looking at the wildlife on the beach. I drew with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen into a leatherbound, Steampunk style A5 sketchbook. Here’s an interesting site with historical anecdotes about Blackpill.
