A horse in gallop

As I mentioned in my last post, it felt really nice picking up the pens and markers again. In the last six months I've spent most of my spare time doing watercolour paintings, which has been a blast. I've seemed to have forgotten, though, how fun other mediums can be as well. So I decided…

A marker rhinoceros

I've been spending a lot of time watercolour painting the last six months. Simply because it's so challenging and so much fun! What I recently discovered, though, is how fun it is to do a marker drawing once in a while. It's quick, easy to manage in regards of supplies and very therapeutic when it…

It became a marker bouquet

In my last post I showed a bouquet i drew, using a fine liner pen. It looked like this: An ink bouquet When I drew it, I was sure I would splash some watercolour on it. Just putting in some vibrant colours and hope for the best. After it was done, though, I got the…

A day at the beach

A sunny pastime

Sitting by my work table one day, not quite knowing what to do, I started on a little doodle on my drawing paper. It started with some cars and people, then a palm tree and suddenly there was the ocean as well. It became clear that this was a drawing of one of those warm…

Trees, trees, trees!

I've been reading a book about drawing techniques lately, and one of the assignments was to draw different types of trees. I got very inspired, and decided this would be a day dedicated to tree drawing. Learning to do it as well as possible. So I set to work. First by drawing quick sketches of…

Soccer sketching

To practise my ability to draw people in movement, I thought it would be a nice task to try and draw a soccer player about to kick a ball. It's hard enough to draw a human being sitting or standing still, so I soon noticed the challenges that comes with drawing something in motion. Is…

A pen and marker Winnie

In the recent months I haven't had much time to do long painting sessions. Therefore, I've been doing a lot more sketching and drawing in the time gaps available each day. The other night I used about 30 minutes doing a quick pen and marker sketch. It's based on this drawing which I found randomly…

Just a cow being a cow

I haven't painted or drawn a lot of animals through the years, which makes me feel very insecure about adding them into the stuff I make. When I've tried to draw them, they end up just like they did in kindergarten with screwed up proportions and way to skinny legs. So to get some practice…

Little Italy, Manhattan

Another day, another marker drawing. This time I wanted to do a version of a picture we took in Little Italy, Manhattan a few years back. It looked like this: There's no doubt that the focal point in this picture is the teddy bear hanging upside down with a cloth over his/her eyes. That was…

An electric line with colours

Another session done, and another drawing of an electic line is put on paper. It's equally fun every time, even though I've drawn a lot of them lately. Put some birds on the lines, and the fun is complete! This time though, I wanted to add some colours to it. I've done a couple of…
