My name is Kim Goksøyr Strande.
In an attempt to find a hobby to spend time on, I started painting in the summer of 2015. I hadn’t done a single painting since kindergarten, but was instantly hooked.
This website was brought to life for my own motivation to keep on going, and to collect, document and share my journey.
This way you can follow my progress – or regress – as I go.
I didn’t know a thing about either painting or drawing when I started out, and have learned just about everything I know through the internet and tutorial books.
My first years was spent doing oil paintings only, before expanding to acrylics, watercolours, markers, pens and digital programs as well.
Placid is described as “serenely free of interruption or disturbance”, which is exactly how I feel when I pick up my pens and brushes. A place to get totally engrossed.
Feel free to have a look around.
Hope you enjoy!
