Kjarval often travelled along the south shore of Lake Þingvallavatn, alongside the Hestgjá gorge; from there he would paint the view to the north. In this area he painted an extensive series depicting Mts. Ármannsfell and Skjaldbreið with cliffs or the volcanic rocks of Hestgjá in the foreground. The pieces in this series differ in style and appearance, the brushwork varies from piece to piece, but the main difference between this series and its predecessors is that the foreground is given greater weight. In the multitude of pieces Kjarval painted of this motif he either emphasised the foreground, depicting lava and vegetation, or maintained a balance between foreground and background
