A drawing done in the field at the enigmatic ancient burial tomb of Carreg Coetan in the 12th century town of Newport on the northern coastline of Pembrokeshire, Wales. This striking Neolithic dolmen is almost 6 thousand years old. It is a lasting reminder of Celtic ancestors and the site is inspirational. I worked quickly in the late afternoon Autumn sunshine to catch it before the sun went down.
I drew with a piece of Daler Rowney carbon onto Fabriano paper that I had marbled with oil paint mixed with English Turpentine. I left the paper to dry overnight in the garden and the snails nibbled it, creating a lacy texture in parts.
