A sketch with some colours

I've decided that 2020 is the year where I'll try to specialize my efforts a bit. I'll try my best to actually plan a painting, and not just do something on a whim and see how it goes. I'll try to find some chosen mediums and motives to get better at, and not just try…

Getting some paintings behind frames

I've been storing all my watercolour paintings in a drawer for the last year. Unfortunately it makes me forget all about them, and what I possibly can do with them. I was going through the drawer the other day. At the same time I noticed that I had some unused frames standing by the wall.…

Having a go at some boats!

I feel that my style has loosened up a bit through the last weeks, which pleases me. The quality of the paintings, though, is something I have to keep working on. Anyway, I wanted to paint some boats in a sunset the other day, and this is how it turned out: To sum up; I'm…

Going bold with colours

To try to really – REALLY – get loose with my watercolour painting, I decided to do a painting with no plan. Just letting my subconscious do the work. Choose the strongest, boldest colours Choose the brush strokes Choose when to stop. Would you believe it, it didn't turn out that well 😀 So I…

Comic number 5 – Out and about

Comic strip number five is here, and – as always – should be read in the context of the previous four strips. This one i based heavily on the following strip, so it may not make much sense right now. Anyway, here are all the strips – so far – in chronological order: More to…

A little recap of 2019

Previously I've written more of an essay when trying to sum up the year that has passed. I realize that the only one who can bear reading all the way through it, though, is me. I've therefore decided to keep it short this time. To sum up; 2019 was the year where I first tried…

A European landscape

Finally a watercolour painting I'm pleased with! It's probably because I moved my scenery from urban surroundings and out to the landscapes, which just felt more right. I also feel that the colours - in the way they are blended and the amount of them - looks much better and with more depth than my…
