From The Sugarloaf

1 Feb


There are two mountains called Sugarloaf in South Wales and Husb and I travelled up and down the nearest, on the A483 between Llanwrtyd Wells and Llandovery on our way to Builth Wells. We stopped at the picnic area to munch our cheese and pickle rolls (home-made green tomato chutney) and I spent a couple of minutes sketching the view back down the valley towards Llandovery.


I drew with white, sanguine and black conté crayons into my A4 brown paper sketchbook (from Seawhites of Brighton). I used the crayons mostly on their side, varying the pressure when I wanted a linear effect. I find that this is the quickest way to draw with them.


I am putting my series of drawings of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder.  If you want to buy one, you can see them by clicking on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.
