Boop That Little Nose

15 Jul

NATHAN JULY 2016

Our great-nephew is having a sleepover and of course he got scribbled! He was contentedly playing with his iPhone which reflected light back onto his face. He’s at that stage where he’s no longer a little boy but not quite a teenager and his face still has some of the softness of a child, but not for much longer. I still want to boop his little nose though. He hates that 😀

I haven’t done much work in my sketchbooks lately so it’s nice to sit at home and draw family. I drew into my A4 hardbound sketchbook, prepared with ripped brown paper stuck in with Pritt stick, using white conte crayon, a 6B graphite stick and carbon.

 

I have been travelling across South Wales with Rhondda-born archaeologist Dewi Bowen and Swansea film maker Melvyn Williams, hunting the wild megalith, accompanied by my portable drawing board, portfolio of Fabriano paper and a bag full of assorted artist’s materials.  Dewi is researching his latest book on Neolithic monuments and Melvyn is making a documentary film of our literary and artistic adventures. All the work I’m doing will eventually be featured in a solo show in The Worker’s Gallery in the Rhondda Valley in September.
