On the way to Thingvellir

IMG_1389 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. IMG_1396

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 studioIMG_1407

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.
