Enjoying the View

This is a follow-up from my last post, to try to keep developing the style. I am happy with the composition and the general impression. But I'm not all happy about the details. It's a bit too sloppy, in a bad way. I just get too impatient to go back and change it. I'd rather…

Going Urban – In my sketching that is..

I've always wanted to master urban sketching. It just looks so very, very cool. I've made a lot of attempts, but haven't really been successful. Often beacuse I haven't been able to let go, and loosen up my style. Other times because it just got too loose. This one, though, is by far the closest…

Riding the Wave

So, in 2018 I painted this acrylic painting, which ended up being one of my favourite paintings over the years: I like how calm it looks, but with a crashing, chaotic wave to balance it in the center. Since I've enjoyed it so much, I decided I wanted to make something more out of it.…

Evening Grains

By pure mistake, I ended up painting this one on the wrong side of my watercolour paper. That's the reason why it looks so grainy. But looking back at it, it actually turned out as a pretty cool effect. Almost like it's painted on concrete or something. So I just might use the same paper…

About Nature

In this marker drawing I decided to put all the focus on nature. Simply by adding natural colours, and colours to trees, bushes and fence posts only. I think it turned out a lot cooler than most of my other marker drawings, where I've put most of the colours on the cabins and people. The…

A Low, Overworked Sun

This is an overworked watercolor painting. I knew it from the moment I started overworking it. I didn't have the patience to wait for it to dry. I didn't have the patience to think about what I wanted to paint before I painted. The pathway in front shows all the different layers that were added.…

A New Evening Walk

There's a few people having an evening walk in the original painting. But why not add a few more? And some fence posts? And some power lines? I don't know if I like it better than the original painting. But I have a lot of fun drawing these. And that's the whole point of it…

Walking the Hills

A little marker drawing again, to get some air. I've missed these sketches, so it was about time I picked up the pens again and had a go. It's the same theme as always. Cabins far up in the mountains, and some people to enjoy it. A new feature, though, is the big scale tree…

Walking Fast

I quite like the strong contrasts in this one, between the trees and the sky. It looks a bit scary. Some place you would walk by fast to get away from. At the same time it looks a bit cartoonish, which also makes it a bit less intimidating. Like some place you would get robbed…
