The Gower

IMG_3779During our visit to the Gower we were set to do 100 A7 drawings of everything we could see which would help us built up a picture in our head of where we were when we returned back to uni. I found this exercise hard but it has now been a focal point for my body of work in field.  When looking back at my drawings a certain element of a lot of the drawings stood out and became a common theme. I had drawn a lot of close ups of rock formations which when being drawn quickly lose the detail but you can still recognise areas of the image. The lines which were used helped to add distance and texture to the drawings. I liked the idea that the drawings were trying to add a weight to what I was seeing and that they have there own way of looking like a landscape even though they aren’t a typical landscape.
