Going Urban – In my sketching that is..

I've always wanted to master urban sketching. It just looks so very, very cool. I've made a lot of attempts, but haven't really been successful. Often beacuse I haven't been able to let go, and loosen up my style. Other times because it just got too loose. This one, though, is by far the closest…

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.…

A Few More Coastal Paintings

As I've made evident in my recent posts, I do like the combination of yellow and blue. Especially when they're added in different strengths of colour. In addition…

In Norway we've been lucky, and prevented a large outbreak back in February. That helped the…

A Quick Photo

Drawing this piece made me think about our trip to Yosemite about six years ago. Cruising through the park we ended up stopping at almost every vista point for "a quick photo", as there were so many beautiful sceneries to explore. As we were only two people traveling together, we ended up with a lot…
