Niwl dros y Gors is from a series of prints I have made which are inspired by Cors Caron wetland nature reserve near Tregaron. I have found this place particularly interesting as a printmaker as I enjoy the contrast of the structural elements of the reeds, grasses and willow with the fluidity and movement of the water and the changing light and weather.
In this print I have simplified the landscape to its key elements, striving for balance in both colour and composition. The ‘Misty’ texture of the print was created by printing using a welsh roofing slate which has also defined the format of the print. The grasses in the foreground and background are printed using copper ink.
