A very chaotic lighthouse

This is an acrylic painting with a very chaotic landscape. To calm it down, I wanted to add a focal point. It ended up being a lighthouse. It made it just a little bit calmer. But still too chaotic. But I don’t want to spend more time on it. So this is how it ended…

The Devil’s Night Out?

The funny thing about a loose style, is that happy coincidences happen. Like in this painting. My intention was to depict an island out there, almost covered in a storm. I didn't notice it until the day after. But coming over the hill down there by the shoreline. Is it the devil, out for a…

These Little Pieces

It's been a while since I've painted these little pieces. So it was time for another one. Out of training, it didn't turn out that well. I'll need to get back into it. But this wasn't about the result. Just getting it done. So I can do it again. I hope you like it, and…

Is It Good – Or Is It Bad?

I just can't decide about this one. It's an acrylic painting I've made using a palette knife. It's a bit chaotic, which I like. But maybe a bit too chaotic, which is not good. It has some depth, but maybe not enough. And it has some details which I like. But maybe they get lost.…

En Rask Tegning / A Quick Drawing

Når det er lite tid tilgjengelig, er det bedre med en rask tegning enn ingenting. Som regel blir det en bakke, og som regel med en hytte på toppen. Det er noe terapeutisk ved det, selv om det etter hvert slutter å være særlig spennende. Litt som å gå en tur. Det kan være samme…

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…
