Abstract And Graphic

28 May

 

culvert 4

I took a different viewpoint for this drawing of a culvert up in the Brecon Beacons, sketching from above, facing along the path of the stream as it trickled downhill to join the River Tawe. I was travelling along the route of the River Tawe to it’s source in the Brecon Beacons, accompanied by two colleagues from the FIRE Laboratory unit at Swansea University who were studying the environment around and under the culverts. I used compressed charcoal and chalk into an A4 brown paper sketchbook. The thickness of the media encourages an abstracted  technique and I like the rather graphic qualities of this drawing.
