Eira dwfn, Nantmor (Deep snow, Nantmor) - Dyffryn Nantmor is one of my favourite valleys, largely because it's often possible to find it completely deserted. It has a narrow, single track road running through it with much needed 'informal' passing places dotted along its length. When it snows in Nantmor, is really snows and on the day I was there drawing for the print below the road was barely driveable and the silence was overwhelming. The only sounds were the river, a waterfall in the distance and a few brave birds. No traffic, no voices, heavenly. The colour palette for this relatively small print was critical to create a mood of utter calm and stillness - the steely blue of the river, the bold black faces of the boulders and just a hint of red in the sky, indicating yet more snow to come.
