Back to Acrylics – Northern Sundown

I've missed doing some old, messy paintings using a palette knife. As it is a bit messy, though, it's harder to put into the schedule. So it's been a while since my last acrylic painting. Not anymore, though. This is my first acrylic painting in about four months: To be hones I just wanted to…

Tracking the Trail

I've come to realize that my sketchbook in many ways has become my comfort zone. In my sketchbook I draw people. They are often outside, in nature. Looking at birds and having a nice time. Or maybe a short walk into the city (but never too far away from the trails). I like doing these…

Cafe Street – Done

In my last post I'd just finished a pen drawing showing a busy cafe street. It looked like this: It was not all done, though, as I wanted to add a stroke of watercolour to it. It took me about one and a half hours laying it, making sure I didn't paint across the lines.…

Cafe Street – In progress

I want to pick up my micron pens again, after almost a year for them lying in the dark in my drawer. I've been doing pen drawings in my sketchbook with my sailor fountain pen, but that's with water soluble ink. Now I want to add some watercolour to finish the drawing off, and that's…

A difficult return to watercolours

I've been spending a lot of time lately doing digital drawings in a new style. The rest of the time I've been doing pen drawings in my sketchbook, using the same style 🙂 So I figured it was time for a visit back to watercolours, to make sure I kept my hands warm with the…

A car from afar

Doing a quick doodle has become quite easy after I purchased a small sketchbook for pen drawings about a month ago. Being able to do a sketch in about 10 - 30 minutes is a great option when there's some spare time at hand. It's also a great way to stay connected with my sailor…

A dance off

I really liked this digital drawing I made a while back: Therefore I decided to make another version of it, using the same colour tones and main design. It ended up looking like this: The colours may have ended up a bit more faded than in the first version, so I don't know which one…

A tatty, old marketplace

If you don't have any other option, this may be the marketplace you end up visiting: I drew it in my sketchbook in about half an hour using a sailor fountain pen, and are quite happy with how it turned out. I got some more practise drawing people using a pen as well. So that's…
