Native Welsh castles have always been an inspiration for me; perhaps none is more evocative of the spirit of the Welsh than Dolbadarn in Gwynedd, North Wales. This linocut print places an imaginary tower, based on Dolbadarn, in an icy setting among the rocks and stones of Snowdonia. By overprinting a second layer of grey, the print is suggestive of the entire landscape being encased in a grip of ice.
