Moel Famau, the monument series

With snow in short supply this past winter I have had to make the most of every dusting before it disappeared. Drawing the monument and note-taking in a sketchbook was the easiest and quickest way of getting all the information I needed. A roll of masking tape came in handy to anchor the pages and stop them flapping in the gale force wind!

Back in the comfort of a slightly less draughty studio the drawings were enlarged with watercolour and pastel applied for the sky effects and shadows.
