I arrived in Iceland on Thursday the 31st of May. I stayed in Reykjavik for one night and I had to get an early bus the next morning to Skagastrond. We arrived around 1pm after a 4 and a half hour bus drive with some incredible scenery. The weather is really nice too, we have had really clear skies and it hasn't been too hot but its not cold either. Theres a lot of bright light due to the clear skies, and also this is my third day in Iceland and the sun has not set, theres 24 hours of daylight.
I'll post up images soon.
As for the project I'm going to take my time with it and build it up gradually, I have 3 months so maybe leave it a few weeks before putting brush to canvas and build up on research work.
