Quiet Fishing

I wanted to make this drawing/painting give a perspective from both over and under the water surface. To give an indication of what's going on beneath. And there is nothing much to see there, to be honest. It looks like it's going to be a very quiet day at the job for this fisherman. As…

Waiting for Water

There's just something about boats at land. The contradiction of it all. And how huge they actually look when their whole bow is showing. When they're mixed up with landly features, like power lines or grass, it's even more interesting. With spring coming up there are a lot of boats on the road. Heading towards…

A 5 minute fishing trip

Sometimes there are few time gaps through the day. I had 5 minutes to spare a few days ago. Usually I'll spend it checking my phone. Which I do too much these days. So I made the decision that I would use it a bit more productive this time. I wanted to make a quick…

A Short Voyage – but hopefully a bit longer

This ended up as a short voyage, I imagine. At least it looks like it's heading straight for that rock. That was actually not my intention, so I hope it's able to steer clear of it. But it was nice to make one of these digital paintings again, trying to keep it loose. I do…

A Walk in the Village

This is another digital sketch I made a while back, and I'm really pleased with it. The reason is the loose style I managed to maintain through the whole session. I started out with a basic pen sketch. I then added a new layer on top of the drawing, with a more detailed linework. I…
