Here’s the last of the 3 drawings I did during the life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop this week. I blocked in some rough highlights in chalk and then did a continuous line drawing with a stick of carbon into my A2 size brown paper sketchbook. It’s a technique I really like, it’s good practice and I like the effect, it’s dynamic.
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.
