Townhill Boy

Townhill Boy

Today I drew for two hours in rain with the public drawing group, The Plebeian Scribblers, along with fellow artists Chris Harrendence, Melvyn Williams and Patricia McKenna-Jones, We were doing our street drawing as part of the Troublemaker’s Festival organised by Volcano on High Street in Swansea. Being Wales, we can’t rely on getting fine weather in the summer and so it rained. And it rained. And it rained some more. This was a challenge for our sketchbooks and drawing materials but graphite sticks won the day, they liked drawing on soaking wet paper. I was drawing a rather boring wig shop window when someone stood in front of me, a Townhill Boy, and it gave the drawing the focus it needed. I put the book onto the pavement to take the photo, you can see how wet it was.
