Adding some colour

It's kind of a random post, this one. But as I've been working on my new comic strip, I've noticed the difference some strokes of colour make to a drawing. So I decided to add some to the old black and white comic drawings I made earlier. Nothing fancy, really, but I think it definitely…

A watercolour sailboat

It still feels a bit off, but here is another attempt on a watercolour painting: I wanted the boat to look a lot more realistic, and - as always - painted in a looser style. The whole painting just looks too simple, if you ask me. Uncreative colours, and no personal touch. I'll keep going,…

It's here: Comic strip number 3!

I feel a need at the moment to keep building on my new comic strip "Local news". So here is strip number three in the series: It builds on the first two strips - with the whole bear article thing - so I would read those if you want to get the full context. You…

A farm in a field

I really want to improve in my watercolour painting, but lately it's been such a struggle. Everything I make at the moment just looks worse than the stuff I've made earlier, and the colours look a lot less natural. I guess it has something to do with me using tutorial videos earlier, and now trying…

My second comic strip

It was real fun making my very first comic strip a few posts back, so it didn't take long starting on the second one. This one is a sequel from the first comic strip, but I feel it can stand on it's own as well. The text may be a bit to small for reading,…

A british pub, or perhaps a church?

This is a watercolour painting of what I guess is a church, even though I was searching for some pubs to paint on the internet.. 🙂 It's ok, but - as always - I want to paint in a looser style than this (!) How can it be so hard being less detailed?? 🙂 Anyway,…

My first comic strip ever!

I've been spending some time lately laying the groundwork for a new comic strip. As a former journalist, the newsdesk lies close to my heart. Through the years I've observed quite a few characters – and their conversations. Therefore, my comic strip is called "Local news". It revolves around a set of main characters working…

Levanger harbour

It was time for a visit back to watercolour painting, so I spent an hour or so the other night painting a scene inspired by the Levanger harbour (the city where I live). The painting does not do the real scenery justice, but it was nice to get back to the medium again. This is…

Character 4

I think this'll be my last character for now. Which means that it's time to actually try and make an attempt on a comic strip... It may take some more time than just drawing up single characters, so there will probably be some posts regarding other mediums in the meantime. Until then, have a nice…
