Smooth Sailing

I imagine this is a cruise. But quite a different type of cruise. The food may not be standard. Nor the entertainment. The cabins may not be top standard. And the captain may not wear a tight uniform. But I'm sure they're having a good time. Doing some smooth sailing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hhhkP6deGU

On to Something New

There is something very charming about the old boats heading out to sea. A message that you don't really need all the fancy equipment, and expensive models. The old standards still work, even though they may just be a bit less safe. I imagine you get a much stronger bond to these old vessels, with…

Sunset Sailing

Here is another piece for my new series of marine inspired digital paintings: The style ended up a bit tighter than in my previous efforts, which I'm not really sure how I feel about. What I like, though, is the whole look of the fishing boat. Especially the bow, which I think ended up quite…

So last time I ended up working with a completely new style, which I just fell in love with immediately. The first attempt ended up like this: Now it was time to keep going, so I set to work the next day wanting to explore the style even further. I decided to add some stronger…

A New Direction

I've been drawing these colourful pieces for quite a while now: They are fun to draw. But they haven't really felt like "me". I wouldn't know what to say if someone asked me about why I'm making them, or what I want to say through them. Anyway, I had a really unproductive watercolour session the…

Confetti for All Good Things

I don't know where all of this is happening. Maybe it's a celebration of a great achievement at work, or reaching that goal you've been working towards for so long. Either way it may be a reminder to keep celebrating all the great things that are happening everywhere, every day. Especially in 2020. We need…

Chopping Wood

This is a place I imagine located between roaring mountain tops. Maybe connected to a cabin for accommodation right over the hill, who needs some wood for the fireplace. It was fun to draw every wooden plank piece by piece. Adding some grass on the roof also made it look more suited for the scenery.…
