Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Here’s one of the ancient burial sites I drew over a weekend on my visit to ancestral graves in North Pembrokeshire. It’s a beautiful little chambered tomb called Carreg Samson, near Abercastle. The dolmen looks out across The Irish Sea from a farmer’s clifftop field in a glorious setting. It’s around 5,000 years old and is the site of over 1,000 burials and more recently a shelter for sheep.

I forgot to take a drawing board with me so I scrabbled around on my hands and knees, drawing on the grass. I drew very quickly because it was cold, blustery and uncomfortable.

Materials used:

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.
