The Coalfield Part 3

Big Pit 2e

Here’s the completed drawing, one of several I did on my visit to Big Pit / Pwll Mawr near Blaenavon last Sunday. I used my sanguine conté crayon to do the final strokes on the drawing, after the black and white. It’s a lovely area with spectacular hills and intriguing industrial heritage.

Husb and I were visiting with a group of artists from The Workers Gallery in Ynyshir which currently has a group show of its gallery artists (I’m one of them) and a solo show from Norwegian artist Tobbe Malm, who creates extraordinary metal sculptures.


Last week was the opening of Swansea’s International Women’s Day exhibition at Cinema & Co. It was fantastic, loads of people there and lots of arty and fun things happening. Cinema & Co is putting on a terrific programme of films through the month because it’s also Women’s History Month. Please check out the programme here …..



I have put my series of drawings of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder.  If you want to see more, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

    I do love this coalfield drawing, there’s so much space in it and you haven’t overworked it, something i almost always do, it says so a lot without being fussy, great stuff

      Thanks Phil. I didn’t do landscape until about a year ago because I didn’t know where to start with it. Using pre – coloured paper is a great help
