In Shallow Waters

This ended up looking more like comic art than I intended: The colours are very bright, and the person on board has kind of a new style as well. I do like the strong colours, though. Even though I kind of struggle to admit it. Maybe it's the feeling of creating something a bit bold.…

A Colourful Sunrise

I've been drawing a lot of boat sketches lately, like these ones: One of the main characteristics about these drawings, is the fact that the boats are not coloured. I think that gives them an interesting look. But how would the boats look with added colour? Would it look better or worse? Well, I wanted…

Before the Sundown

I picture this ship sailing into the sunset: In my mind it is definitely heading out into open water. Maybe doing some fishing. Maybe delivering something to a remote island. Or maybe it has just hit some rocks. The lines do indicate some kind of trouble. Anyway, the story is open for anyone to make,…

The First Voyage

I imagine this is the first voyage for this boat. It ended up looking pretty new and robust, so it just may be a long voyage. Maybe crossing a big ocean, og heading straight through the storm. I like the look of these drawings, with no added colour to the boats. In this one, particularly,…

A Transparent Sea – The 500th post

I'm actually very happy with how this painting turned out. And good that is, because my wordpress account is telling me that this is my 500th post. As I've made evident in my recent posts, I do like the combination of yellow and blue. Especially when they're added in different strengths of colour. In addition…

Fading Away

In my mind it almost looks like the boat is fading away. Slowly drifting into the periphery on a clear, calm sea. It makes me quite peaceful looking at it. Something about just letting nature do its course. Not fighting it. Where it'll end up I don't know. But it's going where it's going.  …

Floating on Loose Waves

A little more air in this one, compared to my recent ones. I think that suits the whole composition, which makes the boat look a bit less dominating. If I had sketched most of the boat black I think it would have lost too much of it's features and just made it look way to…
