drawing Icelandic landscape

October 25, 2013

Drawing landscape doesn’t come naturally to me, does it anyone? But Iceland consists of pretty much ONLY landscape. Big, swathes of Lord of the Rings style mountains and icy water. So I had little choice but to face my fear.

For semi-successful sketches you need perseverance, determination, a bold approach and a plentiful supply of watercolour pencils (and biscuits)…

Here are a few of the more successful ones from my trip to Iceland during the summer…

And finally an example of one of many disastrous attempts. But y’know, I quite like it when they go hideously wrong. It’s funny, and it sort of makes you more determined. I mean what the fucking fuck is this??
