Menhir de Champ-Dolent; Orange, Pink, Blue and Green
“Menhir de Champ-Dolent; Orange, Pink, Blue and Green” gives a colorful look at the biggest standing stone in Brittany. The two human figures next to it give an impression of its enormous size. Neither the stone nor the people are realistic. The stone is inaccessible and proud and seems to radiate magical powers, shown in color. The people are schematic to emphasize once again that we are looking at a personal graphic representation.
The menhir of Champ-Dolent
This is the largest menhir in Brittany. It measures more than nine meters and weighs around 100,000 kilos. If you find your way to the village of Champ-Dolent, just south of Dol-de-Bretagne, and lay your hands on the pink granite, you will feel nothing but respect for the people who put this colossus upright thousands of years ago. Rumor has it that the stone is slowly sinking into the earth. When it is completely swallowed, the earth will end … So let’s keep a close eye on this stone, one of the most impressive neolithic monuments of France.
For this artwork I made a random base layer with watercolor. I then drew the contours of the dolmen with fineliner. Then I added accents to the stone with white watercolor paint and watercolor pencil. The entire process was intuitive. Water color and fineliner pens on paper, 29,7 x 21 centimeters.
