Too Much Water and Too Much Foam

This is an oil painting I've given the name "Water and Foam". Unfortunately I think it ended up with too much of both. I've made other similar oil paintings. Like this one: I think the difference between them are quite striking, though. The new version just looks a lot more wet. There is too much…

Spending All the Blues

A crashing wave is certainly not a new theme for me when it comes to painting, but it's been a while since I last picked up my palette knife. I just felt like playing it a bit safe, having fun and relax with the paint. So this is the one I'm the most pleased with:…

Breaking the Rocks

My first oil painting since January 2019. How nice to enjoy that great smell of (water soluble) oil paint again! Breaking the Rocks The painting is kind of a sequel of this painting, from 2018: I think the 2018 version is the best one, mostly because of the darker colours mixed into it. But I…

Framing an Old Favourite

About two years ago, I painted this palette knife painting during one of my sessions: Since then it has been lying around at home, a bit forgotten and unattended. I really like this painting, though. So when I recently bought a few wooden frames for future paintings, I decided that there was an old one…

A Foamy Shore

Another session, another pallette knife painting. This one I made during a local gathering for painters in the town where I live, and was actually an attempt to paint over a church view I was pretty unhappy with. To be able to paint over the church I needed to get a thick coat of paint…

A late recap of 2018

2018 was the year I started exploring new mediums. Starting out using watercolour I soon expanded to pen, pencil, marker, digital drawing and acrylics as well, wanting to try as many different mediums as possible. The thought behind this was getting as versatile as possible, but also, in the long run, figuring out which mediums…

First painting sold!

My first painting sold, ever, was bought from a local exhibition I participated in just a week ago. I recently joined a local painting club in the town where I live, and after my first meeting I decided to take part in a pop-up gallery they were planning the following month. These were the two…

An abstract mountain range

As I had a canvas laying around, painted over by a base coat of turquoise blue, I decided to do a quick painting. The base coat was dry, so I basically just picked up a palette knife, some ivory black and startet "scraping" in some mountain sides. This being done, I used some turquoise blue,…

Some kind of bird

I guess I'm kind of into painting birds now, since my first and last painting wasn't quite enough. It looked like this by the way: I was actually very satisfied with this one, so I went to work on my new bird painting with a subtle fear of total failure.. I kind of started the…

A bird and a boat

I've had a lot of fun lately trying to paint living motives like people or animals. Both elephants, flamingos, woman and children have been brought to life, with varying luck. There's one more motive I've really been keen to try out, though; A bird. I've been wanting to paint a big bird, like an eagle…
