Loose the Way I Like it

I'm really happy with how this painting turned out. The style is loose, the way I like it, but still tight enough to hold it firmly together. The boat also has a kind of human, industrial look about it. Like the kind of guy that would hang around the harbour, I imagine. The painting is…

Cityscape – A Rough Reunion

When I've been away from watercolour for a while, I do tend to get a reminder of how difficult I actually find it. This time it came through my first speed painting in months. I wanted to just get the feel of it all again. So I cut out a small piece of paper and…

Quiet Fishing

I wanted to make this drawing/painting give a perspective from both over and under the water surface. To give an indication of what's going on beneath. And there is nothing much to see there, to be honest. It looks like it's going to be a very quiet day at the job for this fisherman. As…

Something in Green

I rarely use much green these days. I have a marker with moss green, that I use on bushes, trees and grass. It's the one I've used in the drawing below. But I'm talking about "green green". So for this cabin I didn't want any yellow. Not any blue, and not even any red. I…

About Nature

In this marker drawing I decided to put all the focus on nature. Simply by adding natural colours, and colours to trees, bushes and fence posts only. I think it turned out a lot cooler than most of my other marker drawings, where I've put most of the colours on the cabins and people. The…

Walking the Hills

A little marker drawing again, to get some air. I've missed these sketches, so it was about time I picked up the pens again and had a go. It's the same theme as always. Cabins far up in the mountains, and some people to enjoy it. A new feature, though, is the big scale tree…

Watching the Shoreline

I thought I'd turn this painiting into something new. So I added the photo to my Ipad, and did a digital drawing on top of it. I wanted to draw a nice, relaxing time down by the water. Which may not look that relaxing due to the heavy sea. But I imagine they are in…

A Walk in Autumn Grass

Just a man having a walk in the red autumn grass, to keep my digital pen warm. And a little bush, and some fence posts, and a tree. And a few lamp posts, which we really need in these dark months. And just a few birds to top it off. All in all a bunch…
