"...what remained there".

I would imagine these were painted around the same time. In the pamphlet for Peter's retrospective exhibition in Reykjavik in 1995, his friend Eggert Petursson wrote,"Travel was necessary for Peter to paint. He longed for solitude and sought to investigate the influence solitude had on his perception of the world about him. Painting itself was for him, just a part of the creative process. He went for walks, submitting himself to the influence of whatever met his eye. He did not take with him a sketchbook or any paint tools, but when he finished his walk he emptied his mind of all superfluities and painted from memory what remained there".
