AEDM day 24: escape to the Faroe Islands

It was cloudy, stormy, and rainy for most of our recent trip to the Faroe Islands, but I still managed to get some photos that will make for some good painting inspiration. This little (18 x 24 cm) oil sketch is of the buildings in the historical section of T├│rshavn, the capital.

Many of the wooden houses in the Faroes have roofs made out of turf (which is why a couple of them are green in the painting). The hotel where we stayed had a turf roof as well, which did a good job of muting the sounds from the storm that was raging on the night we arrived.

    To be in a turf roofed house in the middle of a storm sounds delightful! I always love the red in your paintings:)
