Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon in south eastern Iceland in October is understandably perishingly cold but so incredibly beautiful I was entranced. Icebergs of the most intense blues glowed in the still water their reflections so exquisitely perfect it was hard to believe. I felt so insignificant in the face of nature’s magnificence. This glacier is one of five arms of the largest glacier in the northern hemisphere… spectacular!
About the Artist
Chrissie Lloyd studied with Pamela Fairburn, a noted Sydney watercolourist and also with the late Arthur James, an artist of international repute in life drawing. For six years Chrissie studied portraiture both in oils and charcoal with renowned portrait artist Yve Close, also life drawing and sculpture with Alan Somerville for four years.
Chrissie has attended many workshops and tutorials with well known Australian & New Zealand artists including Bernhardine Mueller (master printmaker) and Patrick Carroll (multi-award winning Australian landscape artist) whose approach in both the physical and spiritual sense has influenced my use of acrylic and the way I “feel and see” the landscape. No matter how widely I travel the Australian landscape has my heart.
