A Damp Night – Keeping Up With The Acrylics

After a far too long break, it was a fantastic experience getting back to the acrylics. Without really intending it, I've developed a slightly new style in these new paintings. Something a bit more raw. And that feels very right. I'm very pleased with how this one ended up. The contrasts between the bright orange…

Icy Wind – Another Acrylic Painting

I had such a blast last week getting back to the acrylics. With one finished painting down, I just couldn't wait starting on my second. This time, though, I wanted it to look a bit more raw. Giving that palette knife some serious impact. So I tried out a new technique. I started with some…

Winter Storm – A Fantastically Fun Return

I've wanted to get back to acrylic painting for a while now. But it has felt like such a comprehensive medium in these fast-moving days. A need of too much time and equipment. But, that can't stand in the way of it forever. So I decided to just get on with it, and utilize the…

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…

A Change of Ways – Starting a New Path

So I've done a lot of thinking lately. For the last week or so, I've actually kept myself from painting and drawing much. Why would you do such a thing, you ask? The answer is that I've been running too fast. So fast that I've actually started painting and drawing before I even knew what…

Riding the Wave

So, in 2018 I painted this acrylic painting, which ended up being one of my favourite paintings over the years: I like how calm it looks, but with a crashing, chaotic wave to balance it in the center. Since I've enjoyed it so much, I decided I wanted to make something more out of 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…
