Mesolithic fishtraps made of wickers are often found near river mouths, where people lived year-round centuries before the introduction of farming. These hunter-gatherers are busy making those traps, the woman sharing her know-how with the young man. Another illustration for Trelleborg's Museum.
Skaftafell is part of Vatnajökull glacier. I repainted this a few weeks ago as a workshop demo of how to use virgin paper for white. Iceland is a paradise for landscape painters but not for sun-worshippers.
This is a woman digging up reed roots with a little help from her son. As a former archaeologist working in museums I really enjoy illustrating the new exhibition at Trelleborg's Museum. The opening is November 22nd and the museum is situated next to the central bus stop in Trelleborg. Welcome!
A quick field sketch from the south coast. I decided not to leave out the power stations although I think wind power is uglifying the world at a pace never seen before.
