Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I drew en plein air at Arthur’s Stone, a Neolithic tomb about four and a half thousand years old. Legend has it that King Arthur stopped across the estuary and removed a pebble from his boot, throwing it right across the river where it landed in its present position and grew to a mighty size. In the late seventeenth century, a large chunk of over 10 tons fell off and still lies where it fell.

I am keeping the drawing very simple, I don’t want to get into representational detail, I am trying to get a feeling from the stones and convey that feeling. I am using Fabriano paper; this Italian paper mill has been around since the days of the Renaissance and would have supplied many of the great Masters of Italy. I have prepared it with my own home-made walnut ink which leaves beautiful brushstrokes across the surface and I have allowed these to emerge through the drawing.

Materials used:

I’m using Fabriano Accademica paper that I had previously drawn on with my home-made walnut ink, ripping it into drawing-board sized pieces and drawing with carbon and white conte crayon.
