Electrification

The world is heading in a new direction. Electrification is the increasing trend, while fossil fuel is on it's way out. Well, it's going to take a whole lot of time before it's really out, but maybe it'll be some day. Anyway, thinking about all of this I wondered how those traditional features of our…

Dark Clouds

I'm not very pleased with this drawing. It ended up looking too dark, and too tight. There is no room for interpretation, which makes it a bit less interesting. But I think it looks good, though, all in all. I imagine there is bad weather coming in, which makes the crowd a bit uneasy. Maybe…

What a Day It Was

When I was about seven years old, we played with something called pogs. You might also know them by the name milk caps, which I think they were called in the US. Basically it was a bunch of cardboard caps that we put in a pile. We then used a slammer to try to flip…

There Could be a Treasure from Under the Sea

Pick up a rock And see what's below Something to pick up Or something to throw There could be a treasure from under the sea Something to spark the adventurers glee When I was a kid I loved being down at the beach. Flipping rocks to see if there was anything interesting below. The main…

Waiting for Better Days

Enjoying the View

This is a follow-up from my last post, to try to keep developing the style. I am happy with the composition and the general impression. But I'm not all happy about the details. It's a bit too sloppy, in a bad way. I just get too impatient to go back and change it. I'd rather…

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…

A Low, Overworked Sun

This is an overworked watercolor painting. I knew it from the moment I started overworking it. I didn't have the patience to wait for it to dry. I didn't have the patience to think about what I wanted to paint before I painted. The pathway in front shows all the different layers that were added.…
