Arthur’s Table; Long Live the King?
“Arthur’s Table; Long Live the King?” is one of six watercolors that I made after seeing a beautiful photo of a compact megalithic structure in a forest in Carmarthenshire. The name of the dolmen – Arthur’s Table – suggests that the famous King Arthur has something to do with the construction, but the monument is clearly thousands of years older. On this artwork we see Arthur’s Table, a woman, a king, a soldier and two animals. Everything is about to happen. The soldier can jump on the king, the woman can get involved, the owl can eat the spider. And anything can have happened. The woman may have met with the soldier and the king may have sought her in despair. The big question is which story you see as a spectator here.
For this series I made six base layers with watercolor. I then clarified the contours of the dolmen with fineliner. Finally, I fantasized about scenes that I depicted schematically. The entire process was intuitive.Water color and fineliner pens on paper, 18 x 25 centimeters.
