A Doodle While Deciding

Remember those days when you were down at the beach as a kid? Picking up a stick, starting to draw stuff in the sand. Then you realized you'd made the drawing to close to the water. The tide ominously reaching towards it. Before, inevitably, it washed it all away. This digital painting/drawing is just like…

A Last Meal – The Result of No Plan

This is the result of a digital painting I started on, having no clue about what I wanted to paint. It started, like it often has recently, by painting some waves and a ship. But it just didn't feel right. And it didn't look right either. So I went in another direction. The mast of…

That Way – Another One of Those Sailing Ships

I've been painting a lot of old sailing ships lately. It has just been too fun to stop. So here is another one, being led the way by one of those old, rough seabirds. Now, however, I feel that I've produced all my sailing ship ambitions for a while. So there might just be a…

Foam and Friends – Another Ship

I wrote in my last post about how much fun I had painting a ship. One of those old ships, that looks like they've been sailing for years on end. Well, there was no doubt in my mind that I need to paint another one. And I needed to do it straight away. This version…

Creating Some Consistency

I've done a lot of different digital paintings over the years. Often in series of two or three paintings. But I haven't really found a clear direction I want to move towards. Something that binds them all together, despite their dissimilarities. So I started to think about what I enjoy painting. And what I want…

Rounding Up the Ink

I've had a real hang-up about ink painting lately, which has been a lot of fun. A lot of them didn't go as planned, though, and had to move straight to the bin. But some of them ended up looking rather cool. And here are a few of them: There are a lot of similarities…

Alone

There is something very overwhelming about wild nature. It's so real, yet separate from our lives. A reminder of what we've come from, that is easy to forget.   I've always been impressed by those who spend time alone in the wild. It's something I want to experience myself. To be able to master it's…

A Bad Day – In a New Way

Just to be clear, I am not having a bad day. But these two are: And the new way I'm referring to in the title, is this papery look I've added to the background. At least I hope that's how it looks to others than myself... I don't think I'll walk much further down this…

Too Vague – But Something Interesting

I like the base work of this painting. But I am really struggling taking it further. I have tried several strategies. Both making the boat darker, to pull it closer. And strengthening the foreground, giving it more vibrant colors and more details. But it just doesn’t look right. So I’ve decided that this is one…

A New Name – For the Last Time

As you may – or may not – have noticed, I've given my site a new name. Not any kind of name. My own name. There's no reason keeping it hidden in a corner. I need to own this. And I guess it can't get any more personal than putting in your name in big…
