The Other Side

16 May

Penmaen Burrows 3

I often draw things several times from different angles and this is around the other side of the Cotswold Severn tomb I scribbled the other day. It was also an excuse to sit down on fresh springtime grass peppered with bluebells. For over a year now, I’ve been going out with prehistorian Dewi Bowen and filmmaker Melvyn Williams to find Neolithic and Bronze Age stone monuments linked to the tale of The Boar Hunt, Y Twrch Trwyth, from the Mabinogion, the ancient book of Welsh legend.

This burial chamber is in Penmaen Burrows, just off the beaten track down to Three Cliffs bay.

 

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
