Iceland! Hands down the most incredible place I have ever seen! It’s no surprise that it’s the number one destination for so many people’s bucket list, it’s like being on a different planet! There are stunning 360 views 24 hours a day with pastel sunrises over the ice beaches, towering mountains and waterfalls surrounding you all day long wherever you go, dramatic sunsets and the Milkyway at night, and if you’re lucky the Northern Lights! I went in October with two photographers and a blogger, Chris Orange, Matt Freestone and Ellie Orange who happen to be my brother, sister and a friend! We went with the sole purpose to see as much as we could of the landscape and to photograph it and in my case, paint.
The mountains in Iceland in October are dusted with snow and have waterfalls pouring over them, one of the highest, Glymur, being 198m high! I focused on the lines and form of the rock, which together make up the shape of the mountains, each one being completely unique. While on location I used Ink, Pen, a Water Brush, Pencil and Charcoal…
