This was the large theatre in Pompeii caught in strong afternoon sunlight at the end of October. This was roughed out in conte crayon and then the pigment was shifted about with a Faber Castell cool grey brush pen
This view of the amphitheatre was made from one of the tunnels through which I guess, the fighters entered. It was drawn with the side of a graphite stick and then worked over in crayon and brush pen to add colour and deeper tones. In the labyrinth which encircled it beneath the stands, there was an exhibition and video display of the young Pink Floyd playing this venue, not for a live audience but for the backdrop and acoustics.
My daughter’s drawings of the large theatre populated them with larger than life people, whereas I eliminated the people who were really there, wanting only to show the structure without the clutter of humanity.
