A sketch with some colours

I've decided that 2020 is the year where I'll try to specialize my efforts a bit. I'll try my best to actually plan a painting, and not just do something on a whim and see how it goes. I'll try to find some chosen mediums and motives to get better at, and not just try…

Getting some paintings behind frames

I've been storing all my watercolour paintings in a drawer for the last year. Unfortunately it makes me forget all about them, and what I possibly can do with them. I was going through the drawer the other day. At the same time I noticed that I had some unused frames standing by the wall.…

Having a go at some boats!

I feel that my style has loosened up a bit through the last weeks, which pleases me. The quality of the paintings, though, is something I have to keep working on. Anyway, I wanted to paint some boats in a sunset the other day, and this is how it turned out: To sum up; I'm…

Feeling high – taken a bit down

My recent painting was a real joy to paint, and ended up like this: I could just see the painting come together in a way I really liked, and ended up with a result I was very pleased with. So – as I always do after finishing a pleasing painting – I set to work…

A little recap of 2019

Previously I've written more of an essay when trying to sum up the year that has passed. I realize that the only one who can bear reading all the way through it, though, is me. I've therefore decided to keep it short this time. To sum up; 2019 was the year where I first tried…

A European landscape

Finally a watercolour painting I'm pleased with! It's probably because I moved my scenery from urban surroundings and out to the landscapes, which just felt more right. I also feel that the colours - in the way they are blended and the amount of them - looks much better and with more depth than my…

Adding some colour

It's kind of a random post, this one. But as I've been working on my new comic strip, I've noticed the difference some strokes of colour make to a drawing. So I decided to add some to the old black and white comic drawings I made earlier. Nothing fancy, really, but I think it definitely…

A watercolour sailboat

It still feels a bit off, but here is another attempt on a watercolour painting: I wanted the boat to look a lot more realistic, and - as always - painted in a looser style. The whole painting just looks too simple, if you ask me. Uncreative colours, and no personal touch. I'll keep going,…

A british pub, or perhaps a church?

This is a watercolour painting of what I guess is a church, even though I was searching for some pubs to paint on the internet.. 🙂 It's ok, but - as always - I want to paint in a looser style than this (!) How can it be so hard being less detailed?? 🙂 Anyway,…
