Crossing Norway – In The Narrowest Part

I haven't posted much in the last few weeks. The reason being that I’ve been lucky enough to walk across Norway. Before you get too impressed, though, I should mention that the crossing happened in width, not in length. And it happened in a narrow part of Norway, between Stjørdal and Sweden. But, nevertheless, we…

Rusty Fields

I like these rusty fields. They remind me of autumn. When the weather is a bit colder. And the mind a bit clearer. The skin is hazel brown from the sun. Ready for months of darkness. But with all the light from summer. Will make it until next time. I hope you're doing alright, and…

Something in the Distance

I'm feeling that the "something" in the distance is the main goal of this painting. Maybe it's a cabin, to spend the night. Or maybe it's a ward, showing us the highest point of our journey. Either way, it's a long way to go. But the weather looks nice, so that shouldn't matter. Anyway, I…

Going Down to the Beach

I've been drawing a lot of quick pen sketches over the years, featuring mountain sceneries. But I rarely take the time to visit the beach. So, this time, I decided to just have some fun with it. And make a quick visit. So here it is. My day down at the beach: I hope you…

It’s Tough Being a Crab

When I was a kid (and still to this day, to be honest), I always start turning over rocks when I'm down by the water. The reason, of course, being the possibility of finding a crab. As a kid, when we wanted to catch a big one, we also used to put some goodies on…

After Summer

I've always associated autumn with death and increasingly darker days. It sounds a bit dramatic, but it's not meant that way. The last few years, though, I've slowly changed my mind about autumn. It's not that bad. It's just the natural part of our cyclus. What was green becomes red, and turns into rot. Leaving…

Different Types of Trees

There are many ways to draw a tree. In my early drawing years, I always drew them as a lump of leaves with a trunk coming down from it. After a while I started drawing more distinct species, like pines, spruces and birches. Trees we have a lot of here in Norway. Some of them…

I Like How the Horses Turned Out

This is just a quick doodle I made the other day. There's not much to say about it. Other than that I like how the horses turned out. I drew them the same way I draw people. Quick, and in a very loose style. I've never used this style when drawing animals, though. But after…

Back to the High Huts

On the West Coast of Norway, we have a lot of mountains. They are high. And steep. And, they are blessed with a series of public huts, enclosed in the landscape. The reason behind these huts, is the creation of DNT (The Norwegian Trekking Association). It was founded in 1868. It's mandate being to "acquire…
