Putting Things in a Frame

I've been kind of occupied lately, putting "old" paintings in frames. Because I think they deserve it, after so much neglect and insecurity about them. Two of my acrylic paintings has therefore gotten wooden frames. I think the frames, which is not painted or lacquered, suits the naturalistic style of the paintings. I hope it…

Blowing Up a Storm

This is an acrylic painting I made in march this year, showing a rough sea blown up by the storm. I just wanted to paint some ocean and waves again, which just felt great. There's not much more to say about it, really. I hope you enjoy it as well! And: All of my acrylic…

Distant Mountain – Running out of colours

These paintings are a result of me wanting to do some acrylic painting, but with very limited amounts of colour. Just a few drops of yellow and red at hand, and a small amount of blue, made my sunset scene look a bit different than usual: It was a fun exercise, though, trying to find…

Back to Acrylics – Northern Sundown

I've missed doing some old, messy paintings using a palette knife. As it is a bit messy, though, it's harder to put into the schedule. So it's been a while since my last acrylic painting. Not anymore, though. This is my first acrylic painting in about four months: To be hones I just wanted to…

Blue breaking wave

If you’ve read my last post, you’ll see that this painting is very much like the last one. Basically a copy of the motif. The reason for that is an urge to try and make it better. So this was my first attempt: And this is the new one: I do like the new version…

A forgotten snowy mountain

Ocean and Water

Sitting around in my painting room one night, I decided to have an unplanned go at a painting. I had recently painted over an unsuccessful canvas painting using a black spray paint, and thought I would combine it with some of my blue paint. I had no plan other than to use a palette knife…

A Yellow Sundown

This is an acrylic painting I made a week ago. I don't know how I feel about it, really. On the one hand, I do like how the mountains in the center ended up. I used a pallette knife to kind of scrape the paint on, which made some paint from the yellow background shine…

A colourful stroll

I usually try to paint as lifelike or real looking scenes as I can manage. This makes it hard to get the paintings looking just right, but when I do succeed in some form I just find it exhilarating. The pressure I put on myself to paint something good almost always ends up getting me…

My first acrylic painting

There's been a lot of "firsts" lately, and my last session was therefore no exception. I've been thinking about it for a while, and finally decided to have a go at my very first acrylic painting. I've been getting a lot of acrylic paint as gifts over the years, and recently bought some additional colours…
