Ink and watercolour on paper, John Piper circa 1949-1950.

‘Jan 17 (46)
Lake frozen, from west end under the crags reflecting the sky – palest blue zenith, fading downwards through orange and pinkish orange to
translucent grey – in reverse.’

This is Piper’s description of Ffynnon Lloer from his notes. Despite the reference to colours there is only the softest hint of red across the whole painting.

Reference number: DA008141
