Ar lan y môr (III) - This single colour linocut follows on from the 2013 Ar lan y mor (Black and red versions) and uses the third verse of the song as its inspiration. Moving further up the Anglesey coast, this tiny white-washed cottage, a few yards from the coast path, would have been a common sight on the island a hundred years ago - sadly today, Anglesey is spattered with pebblesdashed bungalows instead. However, I didn't want this to be a sentimental representation of what 'used to be', so I've intentionally steered away (just far enough I hope) from the twee - and at the same time, clearly showing the growing village of Rhosneigr in the distance.

On a map, the sweeping bay is split into four distinct sections - Porth Nobla (unsure of translation - perhaps Noble Bay), Porth Sur (Sour Bay), Porth y Tywod (Sandy Bay) and Traeth Llydan (Wide beach) and each rocky outcrop is named - Ynys Sych (Dry Island), Carreg Lydan (Broad rock), Cerrig y Defaid (Sheep Rocks), Braich Parlwr (Parlour arm), Maen Mawr (Large rock), Cerrig y Brain (Crow Rocks).
