i was lucky enough to spend the last week in iceland! i made a point to do a few travel illustrations of my favorite spots while i was there – one of my favorite ways to experience a new place! i packed a small notebook of arches watercolor paper, a travel watercolor set, and a few pens for my ink and watercolor illustrations.
above is a shot of me painting at glacier lagoon !
& glacier lagoon at the end, although not quite complete as the layers began to frost. (you can see this even in this picture on the bottom right of the page!)
a view of the famous church in reykjavik, hallgrímskirkja.
one of a few waterfalls in south iceland.
the view from the top of hallgrímskirkja (taken at 10am – still dark!)
speed sketch of the outer rivers of blue lagoon – so magical!
i would definitely recommend an iceland visit if you can manage it. even in the dead of winter (we visited in february) the beautiful sights + great people + awesome food made it a definite winner. i hope to return soon !
