Need help.. which one do you prefer?

I painted a bright dinghy on a dark lake the other night.. A digital painting, that is. The boat and the water I was pleased with, but I couldn't seem to settle on a background I felt sure was the right one. So I made quite a few, as you can se here: The problem…

Fowl Play

Another digital drawing is done. This one took about eight and a half hours to finish, most of the time being used colouring. To be honest the whole thing started out with me wanting to draw a car. I've been practicing a lot on drawing them in my sketchbook, but this was an opportunity to…

An abstract conversation

This is a digital drawing I made a few days ago, using a special ink medium on my Ipad. It startet out as a random doodle, really. But after seeing what I imagined was a face (the big, oval one), I decided to keep building on it. It soon expanded to another grown person, and…

Don’t keep me wading

I can definitely be a fan of dry humor, and often enjoy having a go at it myself. This is one of my attempts. The whole thing started with me wanting to draw a flamingo. I've tried it before, but never felt like I've mastered it. So I had a go at my tablet, and…

Big wave on shore

Watercolour paint gives a lot of unexpected, surprising and – often – much appreciated details that I haven't found in any other mediums I've used. Although in a less degree, this also seems to be the case for digital paintings. Making another sea inspired, digital watercolour painting the other day, I found the details that…

In the strobe lights

This is a digital drawing I made on my ipad the other day. I picture him being kind of an akward guy, with not so fancy clothes, whose somehow ended up on the dancefloor on a late night out. What to do then but to stand like a log, trying to tap the beat of…

Electric Ocean

Another day, another digital painting 🙂 This one I painted using the watercolour function on procreate, adding a blue-green background for the sky and ocean. This being done, I started working on the wave. First by adding some darker colours on the inside of the wave, and then a more blue version on top. I…

A Distant Light

Being out and about it can be hard finding the time and occasion to pick up the physical painting brushes. That's when I turn to digital brushes, which I find is a brilliant way to get in some practice when other mediums are out of reach. All I need is my Ipad (or a tablet)…

Drawing a Face

One of the things I've learned over the years is that drawing people is hard. Either the proportions are off, the movements unnatural or the faces way to crooked. I'm still struggling painting realistic humans, but at least there are some progress when it comes to painting cartoonish people. Even though I wish I was…

Eyes, Eyes, Baby

This is a drawing I made a couple of days ago, when I had no specific plan of what I wanted to draw. I started drawing an eye, and noticed that it actually looked a lot like some kind of insect. So I started drawing more of them, varying some of the shapes and sizes.…
