Feeling high – taken a bit down

My recent painting was a real joy to paint, and ended up like this: I could just see the painting come together in a way I really liked, and ended up with a result I was very pleased with. So – as I always do after finishing a pleasing painting – I set to work…

Comic number 5 – Out and about

Comic strip number five is here, and – as always – should be read in the context of the previous four strips. This one i based heavily on the following strip, so it may not make much sense right now. Anyway, here are all the strips – so far – in chronological order: More to…

A little recap of 2019

Previously I've written more of an essay when trying to sum up the year that has passed. I realize that the only one who can bear reading all the way through it, though, is me. I've therefore decided to keep it short this time. To sum up; 2019 was the year where I first tried…

A European landscape

Finally a watercolour painting I'm pleased with! It's probably because I moved my scenery from urban surroundings and out to the landscapes, which just felt more right. I also feel that the colours - in the way they are blended and the amount of them - looks much better and with more depth than my…

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,…
