Straight Ahead to the Unknown

This is my last digital boat painting for a while. I'll let them set sail and go where they want to. This one ended up a bit more surreal than the others, which was quite fun. It was also fun to add a few sailors, and give them some space in the painting. I don't…

In Shallow Waters

This ended up looking more like comic art than I intended: The colours are very bright, and the person on board has kind of a new style as well. I do like the strong colours, though. Even though I kind of struggle to admit it. Maybe it's the feeling of creating something a bit bold.…

A Colourful Sunrise

I've been drawing a lot of boat sketches lately, like these ones: One of the main characteristics about these drawings, is the fact that the boats are not coloured. I think that gives them an interesting look. But how would the boats look with added colour? Would it look better or worse? Well, I wanted…

A Transparent Sea – The 500th post

Floating on Loose Waves

A little more air in this one, compared to my recent ones. I think that suits the whole composition, which makes the boat look a bit less dominating. If I had sketched most of the boat black I think it would have lost too much of it's features and just made it look way to…

Trudging Forward

Trudging forward through life. I guess that's what we need to do when it gets hard. Now that the second large wave of covid-19 seem to have reached Europe we're about to go through another period of social restrictions. In Norway we've been lucky, and prevented a large outbreak back in February. That helped the…
