Hipster On The Beach

18 Jul


It’s been a glorious day – the Summer has returned and it was too hoy to go out comfortably until this evening – earlier today it reached the upper 20s! Which is very hot for gingery, freckly, pasty Northern Europeans like me and Husb. We took a stroll along Swansea Beach and I had a scribble. There were loads of people down there and I spotted this hipster and his chum so sketched them with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, size S, into my A5 size leatherbound steampunk style sketchbook.

The sunset was gorgeous, subtle and stripey and a full moon rising. I’m so lucky to live here.


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.

    Laughing here, it reached 18°C here today and were commenting on how warm it felt after weeks of below zero overnight and about 10-12 °C during the day. Bring on the high 20’s I say.

    Lovely sketch and the weather at your home is really great and the sunset as well. We have to wait for the sun until tomorrow. Then it’s getting hotter here, too. I’d rather would keep the current temperatures around 20°C. 😉
