Pushing Myself

26 Nov

carreg-goch

I did a large series of drawings of Neolithic stone monuments throughout the past year, drawing en plein air, and I recently started to draw from the drawings to try to push mysef into more abstraction. I’m using three colours of conté crayon, white, black and sanguine into my new A4 size brown paper sketchbook. I like drawing onto coloured paper, it breaks the tyranny of the pristine white space. This is Carreg Coch (The Red Stone) in Carmarthenshire which is embedded in a hedge and surrounded by barbed wire, which helps to protect it. Many ancient stones have been moved or destroyed.

 

I have some work in both the exhibitions below, if you’re passing through The Rhondda Valley or Cardiff, please pop in
