Castell Dolbadarn, dwy fran yn troelli (Dolbadarn Castle, two crows circling) - Sometime, not often, I sense from the word go that a print is going to go smoothly. When I visited Dolbadarn Castle, it just felt 'right'. Deciding which aspect to draw the castle from was difficult because each angle offered something different. In the end, the sweeping stairway won me over. The circular tower meant I needed to use three colours not the anticipated two to get a real feeling of roundness but apart from that, the print turned out more or less as I'd imagined.

The two crows circling were a later addition and I feel they add a little something to the narrative. The greeny-blue-grey tones were difficult to capture accurately but the print is currently being exhibited in two venues, Elfen-Celf, Llanberis (the Castle istself is about a mile outside the village) and at the Helfa Gelf exhibition in Bodlewyddan Castle.
