29th-31st of august I made the largest painting I have ever done! I was given the task by a local supermarket, who just told me “go for it”. I wanted to get the mystical feeling of our little island-community, including things like the lighthouse, huldra, the draugr and of course: otters!
Painting took about 13 hours all together, from before midnight and into the morning. I had to work in the summer-short yet polar norwegian night, lit only by the aurora borealis - this because I was using a projector to make it easier to get the whole work correct.
One of the biggest and most fun projects I’ve done, this is my idea of a weekend well-spent!
