Putting Things in a Frame

I've been kind of occupied lately, putting "old" paintings in frames. Because I think they deserve it, after so much neglect and insecurity about them. Two of my acrylic paintings has therefore gotten wooden frames. I think the frames, which is not painted or lacquered, suits the naturalistic style of the paintings. I hope it…

A Change of Ways – Starting a New Path

So I've done a lot of thinking lately. For the last week or so, I've actually kept myself from painting and drawing much. Why would you do such a thing, you ask? The answer is that I've been running too fast. So fast that I've actually started painting and drawing before I even knew what…

Riding the Wave

So, in 2018 I painted this acrylic painting, which ended up being one of my favourite paintings over the years: I like how calm it looks, but with a crashing, chaotic wave to balance it in the center. Since I've enjoyed it so much, I decided I wanted to make something more out of it.…

Blowing Up a Storm

This is an acrylic painting I made in march this year, showing a rough sea blown up by the storm. I just wanted to paint some ocean and waves again, which just felt great. There's not much more to say about it, really. I hope you enjoy it as well! And: All of my acrylic…

Distant Mountain – Running out of colours

These paintings are a result of me wanting to do some acrylic painting, but with very limited amounts of colour. Just a few drops of yellow and red at hand, and a small amount of blue, made my sunset scene look a bit different than usual: It was a fun exercise, though, trying to find…

Back to Acrylics – Northern Sundown

I've missed doing some old, messy paintings using a palette knife. As it is a bit messy, though, it's harder to put into the schedule. So it's been a while since my last acrylic painting. Not anymore, though. This is my first acrylic painting in about four months: To be hones I just wanted to…

Blue breaking wave

If you’ve read my last post, you’ll see that this painting is very much like the last one. Basically a copy of the motif. The reason for that is an urge to try and make it better. So this was my first attempt: And this is the new one: I do like the new version…

A Blue Wave

I had such a blast picking up the acrylic paint again in my last session, so I decided to have another go at it right away. Using acrylics I find that a looser style seem to suit my technique best, as I struggle to paint close details and make well blended color. Anyway, I really…

Back to painting!

It’s been a while since my last painting session. A lot longer since my last painting session using acrylic paint. So I decided to pick up my palette knife again. I didn’t really have a plan for what I was going to paint, I just wanted to use the medium again. So I spent a…
