Iceland Fire & Ice, with Unison Pastels.

Iceland is a unique landscape with active volcanoes and icebergs gives its nickname “the land of fire and ice”. There are lots of inspiration for creative people, everywhere you look there is a scene waiting to be painted. I feel Unison pastels are the best medium to paint this artist’s paradise, to create the glow of the northern lights, mist from geysers and waterfalls. There are around 10,000 waterfalls in Iceland

I visited Iceland in 2016 and have been painting scenes from my trip ever since with my set of 120 half stickpastels. The glorious greens are perfect for the Northern lights, oranges for sunsets and blues for the cool ice caves.

The streets of Iceland are very colourful with illustrations on the walls of Reykjavik the capital to the rainbow brick road in Seydisfjordur.

Iceland’s soil is filled with minerals making it multicoloured with hints of blue orange and red, the the unison half stick landscape set of 16 is perfect to create natural colours of this wonder of Iceland.

Discovering Reflected Color

When asked to identify the color of a shadow, it is common to respond that it would be a darker color of whatever is in shadow.  A shadow of a tree on green grass would be a darker green.  A shadow of the same tree on dirt would be a darker brown.

Garden of Colour and Flight

On two sides looking out the windows is the woods, the view begins not four foot off the sidewalls where trees and open forest floor slope up and gently away. When the spring rain comes, water gathers in the high places and forms water falling streams that run toward and alongside the studio heading toward gathering ponds on the lower side.
