Watching the Shoreline

I thought I'd turn this painiting into something new. So I added the photo to my Ipad, and did a digital drawing on top of it. I wanted to draw a nice, relaxing time down by the water. Which may not look that relaxing due to the heavy sea. But I imagine they are in…

Fence Posts

They got a bit more dominating than planned, these fence posts. Almost like they're popping out of the painting. That made me quite disappointed at first. But now I think it makes it all a bit more interesting. I also like how the trees ended up on the left and right side. The one in…

A Walk in Autumn Grass

Just a man having a walk in the red autumn grass, to keep my digital pen warm. And a little bush, and some fence posts, and a tree. And a few lamp posts, which we really need in these dark months. And just a few birds to top it off. All in all a bunch…

Defying a Crashing Wave

Having fun with the digital programs again. This time I added a fishing boat to an acrylic painting I made last year. The big wave in the distance don't seem to bother the captain. Or maybe he hasn't noticed it yet. In that case, let's hope he does. Have a great day! https://youtu.be/pWEZB4RbTKQ

As "the sun has turned" (as we say here), the days are starting to get lighter. Just a few minutes more of the precious daylight, day after day. Soon the sun will start to warm the skin again. The grass will turn green. The corn fields will errupt. We'll stop wearing jackets, and then sweaters.…

Chaos at the Post Office

This is a watercolour painting featuring the Oatman post office in Arizona, which I painted back in 2019. The original painting looks quite peaceful, so I thought I could bring in some action through a digital drawing. It was fun to bring in some chaos, and quite fun to have a look back at some…

Dry Snow

You know when it's so cold that the snow turns dry? It just flakes off when you rub it in your gloves, and settles light as a feather on the frozen ground. If you shake a snowy branch it comes crashing down your head, finding it's way inside your collar. You wringe as it melts,…
