Neolithic Metropolis

17 May

Green Cwm 2

From the burial chamber near the magnificent beach at Three Cliffs, we headed inland to Parc le Breos to visit another Cotswold Severn tomb. It’s much more complex than most of the tombs we’ve visited, it’s quite big really, almost a metropolis and it was difficult to work out where to start my sketch. So I decided by finding the most comfortable place to sit and drawing what’s in front of me. I drew with black, white and sanguine conté crayons into my A4 brown paper sketchbook.

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
