This is the kind of landscape I came here to see! I have started making studies of the mountains, the effect of distance and weather is endlessly fascinating.
For now I feel like a little ant gathering up seeds for winter. The weather is still relatively good, so I am outside as much as possible painting small gouache and watercolors. These will be food for the wet and wintery weather that is on the way, when I will be keeping warm inside the studio
And here are a couple of quick, small paintings of Hekla, white queen. I wonder how many more clear days there will be. She stays mostly hidden.
Beautiful. Love the contrast between earth and horizon. Amazing. Keep up the good work my Love.
You’re off to a great start! Hekla is magnetic, and magic. She’ll appear to you at the right time. Meanwhile, there are so many nearby wonders… Enjoy!
beautiful sketch/painting….love the white mountain floating on the mauve haze
Thanks B! I am thinking of you often in this walker’s paradise. So glad I brought along the wind/rain pants, I am in them more often than not, makes the misty rain not only bearable, but even pleasant. It’s not too cold.
