Ogwen Triptych / Little Tryfan - The three small linocuts which form the Ogwen Triptych were created speicifically for the Seacourt International Open Mini Print Exhibition 2014. With a paper size limit of just 20cm square I wanted my mini prints to have a fairly generous breathing space all around, so I limited my image areas to just over 8cm. Not daunted by this tiny space, I chose three mountain locations close to home for my subjects.

Little Tryfan is a well-known 'learner' crag for climbers in the area. In the shadow of its big brother Tryfan, Little Tryfan has a character all of its own and this is what I was aiming to capture in this two colour image. In this and the other two prints in the triptych, I've carved, scratched and scored the grey block (this is a two block print), to create a degree of texture, a technique I've not used before.
