Artist's description:

Trekking around North Pembrokeshire, hunting ancient burial sites, took me to Goodwick near Fishguard (what are the fish guarding?) and a bit of a trek along the cliff path towards Strumble Head, through a housing estate and along an overgrown path between back gardens and a barbed wire fence keeping goats at bay to the three prehistoric chambered tombs known as the Garn Wen burial chambers. They’re quite different to the other sites I visited, they are very low, the uprights mostly submerged and the capstones barely above ground. They’re hardly visible amongst the bracken. The other sites are beautifully manicured but this one has been left largely unvisited, going by the state of the hardly used, overgrown path.

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.
