Nant Francon/Ogwen Valley Snowdonia



done recently plein air - part of the mountainside, that carries on steeply upwards and down to the valley bottom

For scale see the single track road winding through on the bottom right

Scene of my first youth hostelling trip, Vivien, in 1958! Wonderful spot isn't it although my memory of 59 years ago is of unrelenting rain. Yours is a very good plein air and the rocks and grassy slopes look very authentic. Glad you had better weather than I did!

I really like this. I drove from Caernarfon to Bath a few years ago and loved the Welsh countryside. You've captured the slate in the hills perfectly.

Re: Nant Francon/Ogwen Valley Snowdonia

Thank you everyone I do love to work plein air and this was a whole week with fellow painters - just friends, all working very differently, no tuition but crits every evening - very very tiring but such a buzz
