Photos of paintings

I've been trying a new technique lately for making more out of my paintings. Basically by buying a photo tent and a photo printer. The process is as follows: I put my painting in the photo tent, adding light by using two LED-lamps. I then take a photo with my camera, and give it a…

Some kind of duel

Maybe I've been reading too much Harry Potter, because my recent digital drawing ended up as some kind of magical duel.. There's something special about those magical books, which is probably why they are so popular. Not only for children, but grown ups to. It may be a world we were dreaming about as kids,…

A windmill in Copenhagen

If you google "A windmill in Copenhagen" this is the windmill that pops up. I took this photo during a trip to Copenhagen back in 2014. The windmill is located in an area callet "Kastellet" (The Citadel), which is one of the best preserved fortresses in Northern Europe. The windmill was built in 1847 to…

Even more faces!

I'm not very good at drawing faces, but I think I'm getting better step by step. Ironically I find that the best faces are the ones where I use less time and less carefull strokes. These are two drawings I made while watching tv, not thinking too much about how they would turn out in…

A street in Phnom Penh

This is another painting that turned out ok, and nothing more. It's based on this photo, which we took during travels in Phnom Penh a few years ago: I had high hopes painting this one, getting in the deep orange sun and the tuk tuks in front. I wasn't able to materialize my hopes, though.…

A boat in Hoi An

We visited Hoi An, Vietnam during a holiday in 2016, which was a really beautiful city. Lot's of colourful buildings, colourful boats and rally nice people. This is a photo we took, walking along a small canal. Hoi An, Vietnam As I was in the mood for a quick sketch, I decided I would do…

Walking in Hanoi

This is a sketch of a woman we walked behind when we were traveling in Hanoi, Vietnam. Hanoi, Vietnam I don't know what was in the bag, nor in the huge pile of cloth she was balancing on her head. She was carrying it very steady, though. Like she'd been doing it all her life.…
