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.…

A Walk in Autumn Grass

Just a man having a walk in the red autumn grass, to keep my digital pen warm. And a little bush, and some fence posts, and a tree. And a few lamp posts, which we really need in these dark months. And just a few birds to top it off. All in all a bunch…

Morning Sun

As "the sun has turned" (as we say here), the days are starting to get lighter. Just a few minutes more of the precious daylight, day after day. Soon the sun will start to warm the skin again. The grass will turn green. The corn fields will errupt. We'll stop wearing jackets, and then sweaters.…

Autumn Grass

I've spent a lot of blue and green paint lately on these watercolour pieces. At the same time I've been really pleased with the paintings where I've used more of the yellows and reds. So why not spend a lot more of those colours in my recent effort? In this painting I've turned the balance…

A Red Morning

Christmas is coming up. So I wanted to paint a christmas card. Some snowy pines and a blue field. But it shouldn't all be blue. That often gets a bit much. So I went with a red sky. I think that worked out quite well. So here is the result: And a merry christmas to…

Havoc on the Island

Another digital drawing on top of an old watercolour painting. This one is a painting of Runde lighthouse, which I made in August 2019: I wasn't all that pleased with how it ended up, but now – looking back at it – I like it a lot more. It could use a bit more energy,…

The Thunder

This is a painting I ended up very pleased with. The main reason for it is the impression of lightning bolts coming down from the sky. This impression of thunder was made using a lump of damp kitchen paper, just dabbing it lightly on the half dried paint. I then let it dry completely, before…

Autumn Evening

It kind of looks a bit scary, this one. But my intention was to paint an autumn evening, with just a hint of fresh snow. Despite the Halloweenish look, though, I think it turned out quite nice. I tried to add some black gouache on one side of the trees, to make the impression of…
