Snowdon Summer   (Can anybody supply me with this title in Welsh, please?  -  email details on commissions page)

20 x 24 inches,  oil on canvas board,  painted mostly using palette knife,  2013

The summit of Snowdon dominates this scene, although it is only part of a magnificent horseshoe ridge extending from Crib Goch, beyond the painting to the right, all the way round to Lliwedd a minor peak which is beyond the painting to the left.  The Miners' Track can be seen winding its way from the derelict mine buildings along side Llyn Llydaw to climb the slopes towards the cirque lake of Glaslyn at the foot of Snowdon itself.  The old copper mine workings were in this area and their waste tailings are just visible in this painting  under a green area  below the saddle of Bwlch  Glas to the right of the summit of Snowdon itself.
