Bornholm Residency

I recently had the opportunity to spend a few weeks on the little Danish island of Bornholm, which is located south of Sweden, in the middle of the Baltic Sea (I was offered the use of a summerhouse so I could explore and paint this magical place). Bornholm has a scattering of small towns and villages across the island, with gorgeous colourful houses and little harbours. In each village there is also usually a smoking house with their distinctive chimneys and delicious smoked fish for sale. I found the landscapes mesmerising and whilst I was there I had a very productive time of painting, and will continue to be inspired for a long time to come.
