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…

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…

Night Time – Light to Black

I love painting these trees. The branches gives such a delicate look, I feel. Like they're dancing lightly in the breeze. I haven't done one of these paintings on a dark background before. So I thought I would give it a go. I was imagining the moon hanging dimly in the sky, looking up at…

Don’t Look Down

Until recently, I've had the habit of looking down while walking. As if thinking demands the view of the ground. But then I looked up, and saw all the lovely trees, the birds and the skyline. A whole lot of room to let the thoughts fly free. And so they did. The sounds got clearer.…

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…
