OR196: Y Llethr and Llyn Hywel (oil)

Y Llethr and Llyn Hywel (oil), an original oil painting by Rob Piercy, Mountains,Lakes and Rivers, Wales,Rhinogydd, 60 cm x 100 cm

60 cm x 100 cm

A powerful composition, the narrow bwlch between Y Llethr and Rhinog Fach is flanked on the western side by Llyn Hywel where steep slabs of rock plunge dramatically straight into the depths. An artist is always on a winner when a natural feature leads the eye into the distance, but has to be very careful to use it well. In this case the detail in the foreground is pin sharp whereas the distant ridge of Y Llethr is less so.
