Artwork description:

Here’s the second of the two ancient burial chambers I drew recently at Rhosilli on the Gower Peninsula. There is an air of mystery surrounding them which was increased by the eerie fog which clung to us on our trek. This is the northern Sweyne’s Howes, much more complete than the ruinous southern chamber which has been stolen over the years. These Neolithic monuments are over 4,000 years old and although named after the Viking Sweyne, who also lends his name to Swansea (Sweyne’s Ey or Island), they are considerably older than the Vikings.

Materials used:

White, sanguine and black conté crayon, drawing en plein air into my A4 brown Kraft paper sketchbook.
