Gingerbread Coast – Something Sweet

This wasn't supposed to end up like some gingerbread land. Not at all. It was supposed to end up like an authentic sunset sailing. But when the boat ended up looking like a gingerbread cookie, I might as well decorate it with some frosting. Lying there, all capsized on the rocks, it looks like a…

Twisting Trees – The Last One For Now

I've made a lot of these tree drawings lately. So many, actually, that I feel quite done with them. But I had to make a last one. Because I had it pictured all clear in my head. So I set to work, with the aim of just getting it done. No real pleasure about it.…

How To Get There – A Simple Evening Drawing

This is a simple evening drawing. Made in my sketchbook using a fountain pen. It features a man. And the question of how to get to his destination. Or should he even try? I don't know. And I like to leave those questions hanging. I also did another drawing. Of nothing at all, really. Just…

Pushing The Boundaries – A Digital Layer On A Physical Drawing

I've mostly kept my physical and digital work separated. Somehow, I feel that's the right thing to do. Like a digital layer would ruin the authenticity of a physical drawing. How seriously I take myself and these simple drawings... Well, let's just have some fun. Let's try it out. And just let it be what…

People Walking – Not An Easy Subject

I’ve been making quite a few drawings of people walking lately. And I don’t think it’s an easy subject. There has to be movement. And it has to look right.  I hadn’t really planned adding dogs to the scene. They just ended up there. It felt natural. And the last sketch ended up looking like…

Coastal Mashup – Something From Everything

This is a digital painting borrowing my favorite subjects from previous digital paintings. A lot of them, as you may see, are boats and ships. Others are mountains, reefs and just a whiff of that retired fisherman. I call it a coastal mashup. It brings up a lot of memories. Both from painting sessions and…

Letting The Ink Flow

I had such fun doing ink drawings last time. So there was really no need to stop. I’m letting the ink flow with a few new drawings. As you may have guessed, there are just a few more cabins. I make these drawings using a fountain pen in a moleskine book. I find that the…

Cabins Up High – Some Physical Drawings

I’ve done a lot of digital drawing lately. Because it’s easy to pick up. And fun to do. But it’ll never beat that feeling of a fountain pen scraping against paper. The sound. The resistance from the material. The ink glistening, waiting to dry. I wanted to experience that feeling again. So I picked up…

Treescape – Can’t Stop Drawing Them

Trees, trees, trees. I really don't know why I enjoy drawing them so much. But I certainly do. It's monotonous. Time consuming. Brainless work. And maybe that's just it. Something to do to make the brain relax. Stop thinking. Stop sensing. Just moving along down those wavey branches. Like some kind of therapy. Anyway, if…
