Artist's description:

I love the way this drawing reduces the landscape to its basic shapes and brings out the colours. It’s a beautiful site, Gors Fawr, near Mynachlog-ddu in the Preseli mountains, a lush green bog fringed with glowing hills, dotted with a stone circle and two outliers constructed from bluestone.

I have been travelling across South Wales drawing ancient monuments; cold and stormy, hot and humid, up mountains, through slurry, mud and bog, in all weathers accompanied by my portable drawing board, portfolio of Fabriano paper and a bag full of assorted artist’s materials. Each monument, each ancient site, affects me in different ways and this carries over into my drawings. I work quickly and intuitively and don’t really see what I’ve done until it’s finished. This was a surprise – it’s quite Pop Art.

Materials used:

Carbon, pastels and conte onto distressed Fabriano paper which has been overlaid with gesso, charcoal and a wash of my homemade walnut ink.
