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.…

Evening Grains

By pure mistake, I ended up painting this one on the wrong side of my watercolour paper. That's the reason why it looks so grainy. But looking back at it, it actually turned out as a pretty cool effect. Almost like it's painted on concrete or something. So I just might use the same paper…

About Nature

In this marker drawing I decided to put all the focus on nature. Simply by adding natural colours, and colours to trees, bushes and fence posts only. I think it turned out a lot cooler than most of my other marker drawings, where I've put most of the colours on the cabins and people. The…

Walking the Hills

A little marker drawing again, to get some air. I've missed these sketches, so it was about time I picked up the pens again and had a go. It's the same theme as always. Cabins far up in the mountains, and some people to enjoy it. A new feature, though, is the big scale tree…

A Rescue Mission

Maybe it's inspired by the new year, or the worlds need for a big rescue mission. Maybe both. But in the smaller picture this is yet another digital drawing on top of a watercolour painting I made back in 2019. As with the other similar attempts I've made recently, it really helped to spark the…

Chaos at the Post Office

This is a watercolour painting featuring the Oatman post office in Arizona, which I painted back in 2019. The original painting looks quite peaceful, so I thought I could bring in some action through a digital drawing. It was fun to bring in some chaos, and quite fun to have a look back at some…

Dry Snow

You know when it's so cold that the snow turns dry? It just flakes off when you rub it in your gloves, and settles light as a feather on the frozen ground. If you shake a snowy branch it comes crashing down your head, finding it's way inside your collar. You wringe as it melts,…

An Invaded Dock

I get kind of a "The War of the Worlds"-feeling from this painting. But in a much, much less intimidating way. Instead of guns and plans of dominion these guys looks more like some tourists, having a look at their new whereabouts. The "cows" on top of the boats does certainly have an alien look…
