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.…

Early Hours – Sailing in the Sunrise

There is something special about a boat sailing in the rising sunlight. The feeling of a fresh start. New destinations. New possibilities. Or a new day to haul that fish. So that became the theme of this digital painting. I've been trying to get a more authentic look on my digital paintings lately. Get some…

Blue Fog – Something In The Dark

This is a very dark digital painting. There is a clear focal point in the sailing ship. But it's not easy to catch before you look closely. I like how the darkness sets the mood, though. How it looks so quiet. Like the engine and the bow breaking through the water is the only sounds…

Ocean Disco – Five Hours Of Whims

I spent five hours on this digital painting. And I don't have the slightest idea what it is. Maybe I ate some bad mushrooms for dinner.. It's a fun painting, though. So full of life and energy. How we should view the fantastic coastal scenery, and it's pure forces. Like an ocean disco. Inviting us…

Piled Up – Another One Of Those Trees

I've made quite a few digital drawings recently, with trees playing the main part: Out of these ten, two of them are my favourites: They are not as whimsical as the other ones. But a bit more calm and sophisticated. Something that might end up on a wall. So, I wanted to make another one…

Out Of The Fog

I like how misty this scene looks. And how clear the boat looks. However, the sharpness of the boat makes it look less real. Which also makes the scenery look less real. Something adolescent about it. It takes away a lot of the mystery. And a lot of the depth. But, it also makes it…

Arrival – A Sniff Of Paint Tubes

Most of my digital paintings are very clearly digital. Strong colours, sharp lines and clear distinctions between layers. For this piece, I wanted to catch just a sniff of paint tubes. See if I was able to make something with a bit more contexture, if that makes sense. It was a fun experiment, and I…

Mountain Air

Walking up a mountain in daylight is lovely. Walking up a mountain during sunset is magnificent. Everything around you glowing. The grass, the sea below, the sky above. Birds returning to their nests after a long day out hunting. Or getting ready to head out for the night. It's not calm. It's lively. It's shifting.…

End of the Road – Something Whimsical

It's kind of a whimsical piece, this one. And more whimsical than I intended. But I seem to have a need getting that part of me out from time to time. It doesn't take a huge part of my social personality, to say it mildly. Anyway, this is a scene I imagine along the Norwegian…

Smell The Air – Sticking Around at the Coast

In my last post I took a trip from the mountains down to the coast. Simply to get a feel of that fresh, coastal air. And it ended up quite refreshing, indeed, to add some sea salt to the scenery. So I couldn't stop with just one. I had to at least make another piece…
