Yng nghysgod y Garn (in the shadow
of y Garn) - the eye is drawn high up the print to the
dark tones of the low craggy outcrop on the right hand side and
then scans left to a point just off centre where the river starts
its tumble through the rocks on its way down to join the Afon Ogwen.
Two trees and a lone boulder break into the paler tones behind,
visually throwing the snow topped Y Garn backwards. The deliniation
of shapes used elsewhere, is absent from the background, also helping
to make the mass of the mountain recede.
Conscious use of larger shapes and greater areas of
darker tones in the middle and foreground make the whiteness of
the river appear even whiter and the eye is inclined to follow it
through the rocks to the point where it falls out of the bottom
right hand corner of the print.
