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 New Evening Walk

There's a few people having an evening walk in the original painting. But why not add a few more? And some fence posts? And some power lines? I don't know if I like it better than the original painting. But I have a lot of fun drawing these. And that's the whole point of it…

Walking Fast

I quite like the strong contrasts in this one, between the trees and the sky. It looks a bit scary. Some place you would walk by fast to get away from. At the same time it looks a bit cartoonish, which also makes it a bit less intimidating. Like some place you would get robbed…

Watching the Shoreline

I thought I'd turn this painiting into something new. So I added the photo to my Ipad, and did a digital drawing on top of it. I wanted to draw a nice, relaxing time down by the water. Which may not look that relaxing due to the heavy sea. But I imagine they are in…

Fence Posts

They got a bit more dominating than planned, these fence posts. Almost like they're popping out of the painting. That made me quite disappointed at first. But now I think it makes it all a bit more interesting. I also like how the trees ended up on the left and right side. The one in…

Defying a Crashing Wave

Having fun with the digital programs again. This time I added a fishing boat to an acrylic painting I made last year. The big wave in the distance don't seem to bother the captain. Or maybe he hasn't noticed it yet. In that case, let's hope he does. Have a great day! https://youtu.be/pWEZB4RbTKQ

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…
