Heiðmörk, oil on linen, 35 x 60cm

 

I was very excited when I discovered this cabin which is located in Heiðmörk about 10 kilometers outside of Reykjavík. “Now thats a painting” I thought to myself. I was most interested in trying to capture the way parts of the building is obscured by the trees and bushes. This is a larger painting done from sketches on location. About an hour into the painting I almost gave up and scraped the whole thing down, but I decided to power through and I am glad I did.
