Artist's description:

Historically named 'Wurm' meaning 'dragon' by Viking invaders, the promontory, Worm's Head, is shaped like a giant sea-serpent and marks the most westerly tip of Gower.

It’s a fantastic location and I drew it for the first time this summer. I was on Rhossili Downs to draw a burial chamber which you can see in the foreground but the sheer drama of Wormshead is what dominates the image. You can see why 5000 years ago our ancestors felt the need to mark the place with a monument which has lasted to this day.

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.
