A Magnificent Beast

13 May

Rhossili 4

Wandering across The Gower Peninsula hunting megaliths, we encountered this magnificent beast in a field in Knelston, also known as the Burry standing stone. I used white, sanguine and black conté crayon, drawing en plein air into my A4 brown Kraft paper sketchbook. The bear’s paw holding the sketchbook is one of my Xmas furry fingerless gloves which are dead useful for sketching on chilly days, a most useful prezzy from my sister.


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. So did you know that Elvis Presley is descended from the Welsh? This drawing below is the legendary grave of Saint Elfys (Elvis) in Pembrokeshire, not for from the Presceli Mountains. Elfys? Presceli? Elvis Presley? Coincidence? hhhmmmm
