A Walk On The Beach

16 Apr

Swansea Bay Tower 2

Went for a walk on the beach, Swansea Bay, earlier today. Husb took off to do a run and I sat and scribbled into my A4 brown paper sketchbook from Seawhite’s of Brighton. I used black, sanguine and white conté crayons. Swansea Bay Tower

There isn’t a huge amount to draw on the beach and I’ve found that intimidating in the past, but many artists have made pictures from very little subject matter by concentrating on the atmosphere or their feelings for what’s in front of them, so that’s what I tried to do this evening.



I have put my series of drawings en plein air 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. This one is the legendary grave of Saint Elfys (Elvis) in Pembrokeshire, not for from the Presceli Mountains. Elfys? Presceli? Elvis Presley? Coincidence? hhhmmmm

    That’s a good reminder of how we can make art!

    What a lovely way to connect with the beautiful scene, to draw it and become part of it.

      I prefer to draw that to take photos as I remember it better from a drawing 🙂

        that’s what I think too — drawing is much better for remembering things

      Oh yes, uses so much of the brain 🙂
