A winter forest – Digital painting

This is a digital watercolour painting I made one evening, when I didn't know what to paint.. So I started with a random background wash, which I think ended up quite interesting. I then tried out a few options with the pen tool, to see what would work. I couldn't decide which one I liked…

Just standing in the snow

This is the result of a quick, digital watercolour session last night. I didn't know what to paint, so I just startet with the blue background to get some kind of start. Then I added the people, the distant mountain and the snow. I think it's ok, but I feel it's lacking something exciting. Something…

Dinghies in a glass.. just letting it flow

I had a thought one day that I wanted to paint some dinghies in a glass. A drinking glass, that is. With some ice cubes in it. So I decided to give it a try in procreate. I started by drawing the basic outlines of the dinghies. Then I added some water using the watercolour…

Down at the docks

I don't feel like I've really gotten the hang of watercolour painting yet. What to do first? When to draw with ink? how to get the colours to blend right? It's all a bit unclear to me. To try and get some kind on grip on it, I had a go at a digital watercolour…

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…
