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…

About Nature

In this marker drawing I decided to put all the focus on nature. Simply by adding natural colours, and colours to trees, bushes and fence posts only. I think it turned out a lot cooler than most of my other marker drawings, where I've put most of the colours on the cabins and people. The…

Walking the Hills

A little marker drawing again, to get some air. I've missed these sketches, so it was about time I picked up the pens again and had a go. It's the same theme as always. Cabins far up in the mountains, and some people to enjoy it. A new feature, though, is the big scale tree…

By the Sea

A Doodle with some Ballpoint Pens

When we start to draw and paint we often use the simplest tools. Like ballpoint pens in a random notebook. Since I've bought me a lot of new pens and papers since then, I figured it would be fun to just get back to basics. So here is a random doodle using two ballpoint pens…

No wooden planks

Almost every cabin I've drawn has included lines on the walls resembling wooden planks. Like these ones: I suddenly remembered, though, that I have a couple of drawings without these lines, which I rather like. Like these ones: So I decided to draw a couple more cabins using this style. It ended up like this:…
