Wedge Tomb; Summer Afternoon, Red Earth

Wedge Tomb; Summer Afternoon, Red Earth” gives a look at a Wedge Tomb. Behind the grave on the red earth we see the green trees and plants. Life envelops death in maximum contrast.

Wedge Tombs

Most wedge tombs are in Ireland; 505 in number. They also appear in Northern Ireland and Cornwall. Characteristic are the capstone and the cairn of smaller stones. The deeper you go in a wedge tomb, the narrower and lower it becomes. Wedge tombs lie often on mountain slopes, three-quarters from the hill to the top. Just like dolmens, standing stones and stone circles, they date from the Neolithic period.

Technique of Wedge Tomb; Summer Afternoon, Red Earth

For this artwork I made a base layer with watercolor. I then drew the contours of the dolmen with fineliner. I used hatching for the details. Here and there I have blurred the distance with some extra water over the original layer. Water color and fineliner pens on paper, 18 x 25 centimeters.
