Strong Strong Strong

21 Jul

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop, working with an older woman model who is one of my favourites. She is a strong woman with strong features and a strong body, inspiring to draw. I did one portrait study, working with charcoal and chalk into my A2 brown paper sketchbook. I used my fingers to draw as well, smudging the charcoal to make the lines bolder.

 

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.
