Back To The Boomers

25 Aug

Marsden S

After yesterday’s drawing detour to The Druids’ Temple in The Lake District, I’m back with the Boomers that I drew last week. I’ve done over 50 of the planned 100, but I’ll still have to get my skates on to complete them by the end of the year. It’s a big age group, from 1946  to 1964 and this Boomer is one of the youngest. I’ve been drawing with a graphite stick into my A4 ringbound sketchbook and each sketch takes no more than 30 minutes, many take a fair bit less time.

Over the last seven months, I have been travelling across South Wales with Rhondda-born archaeologist Dewi Bowen and Swansea film maker Melvyn Williams in all weathers with my portable drawing board, portfolio of Fabriano paper and a bag full of assorted artist’s materials to draw our ancient heritage.  Dewi is researching his latest book on Neolithic monuments and Melvyn is making a documentary film of our literary and artistic adventures.

I’ve done around 50 drawings now and these will be exhibited in my solo show in The Worker’s Gallery in the Rhondda Valley in September. Please click here to find out more about it.
