Iceland arctic watercolour paintings by Rob Miller FRSA

Flateyjardalu Husavik watercolour on 300lb paper
28.5cm x 19cm
Latrastrand North Iceland watercolour 18.5 x 14.3 cm


We spent a number of days sailing on a schooner from North Sailing across the ffiord from Husavik to Flatey Grimsey and then down the long loch past Hroifs-sker to Hrisey. The wind came cold blown with frozen rain except for two days of sunshine and blue skies. I managed a number of drawings and a few watercolours once we had landed. As always the salt spray did little for the sketch book which would not dry at all, so different from the en plein air of Spain and Portugal  so difficult to cope with when the scenes fly past in spectacular sequences with the sketch book totally wet.
