Iceland palette

Monday, 10 March 2014

Travelling has always inspired my painting, and on a recent trip to Iceland I was amazed at the different colours and quality of the light. Today, I'm just experimenting with some colour palettes inspired by my trip. Above, the icy colours of Gullfoss.

A sky of hot and soft pinks and greys, contrasts with a dark mountain silhouette.

An incredible double rainbow against mossy brown rocks and a vivid blue sky.

When I think of Iceland I also think of red/orange houses contrasting with the blue. Above, a similar red with lime green and vivid turquoise ship tackle.

The clear and crisp tones of Vik

Although it looks slightly more grey blue on this photo - my overwhelming memory of the Blue Lagoon was a surreal, almost artificial creamy turquoise colour.
