Cysgodion hir ar lethrau'r Cnicht - The 'famous' view of Cnicht is from the Cob that crosses the estuary at Porthmadog but for me, this closer view from the Croesor Valley is more characterful and intimate. In the early evening sunshine, fantastic long shadows fall on the sunlit scree slopes and the complexity of the mountain's geology is thrown into sharp relief. It seems to have everything, broken rock, scree, curves, crags, outcrops, dips and crevases. Getting all this into one print (well, two actually) in an orderly fashion called for four, detailed preparatory sketches. The repetition and repeated looking enabled me to eventually pinpoint and pare down the drawings into distinct elements which give the mountain its unmistakable character before translating them into solid areas of colour ... 7 this time!
