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…

People Walking – Not An Easy Subject

I’ve been making quite a few drawings of people walking lately. And I don’t think it’s an easy subject. There has to be movement. And it has to look right.  I hadn’t really planned adding dogs to the scene. They just ended up there. It felt natural. And the last sketch ended up looking like…

Letting The Ink Flow

I had such fun doing ink drawings last time. So there was really no need to stop. I’m letting the ink flow with a few new drawings. As you may have guessed, there are just a few more cabins. I make these drawings using a fountain pen in a moleskine book. I find that the…

Cabins Up High – Some Physical Drawings

I’ve done a lot of digital drawing lately. Because it’s easy to pick up. And fun to do. But it’ll never beat that feeling of a fountain pen scraping against paper. The sound. The resistance from the material. The ink glistening, waiting to dry. I wanted to experience that feeling again. So I picked up…

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…

Faltering Summer – Maybe The Sign Of A Break

I've been drawing a lot of birch trees recently. Or, trees in general, to be honest. This time it's depicting a faltering summer. The warm earth is getting just a bit colder. The green is clinging on to the last leafs. And it's getting ready for winter. I can't help thinking that this might be…

Calming Down The Colours – More Warm Days

In my last post I ended up with a summer scene quite like this. The difference between them, though, is that the last one had stronger, clearer and purer colours. I liked the look of it. But I felt that it could be softened up a bit. Giving the scene a warmer mix. Well, my…

A Glowing Summer – Keeping it Simple

This drawing is quite simple. Yet, I like it very much.  It didn't end up as loose as I wanted. And the colors of the wash are a bit more pure than originally planned. But it's so calm and peaceful. I would really like to go there. Hearing those birds chirping. Maybe feel that dull…

Focusing Real Hard On That Loose Style

I was quite happy with my last attempt at some birch trees, adding a little wash to the finished ink drawing. It was done in such a loose style, like I've always tried to manage. This time, though, it ended up much less satisfactory. The drawing itself is not that bad. But the wash is.…
