A Long Walk – And a Big Mountain

There is something special about walking along mountains. How overwhelmingly huge, timeless and unshakable they are for us mere mortals. How they've been there for thousands of years, and will be for thousands of years to come. In a way, it's nice to feel how insignificant we are in their presence. A glimps of a…

Black Waves – Something From the Ocean

I've been painting a lot of mountains and landscapes with my ink paintings. So I felt it was time to head over to the ocean. I wanted to make some waves. Some rocks. And some movement. I was a bit unsure about how I wanted to get there. So I just started adding a wash,…

Painting With Ink – How Strange and Fun!

How strange and exciting it was trying to paint with ink for the first time. I was a bit unsure about how manageable it would be to get a good result. And, compared to watercolours, it was definitely a more chaotic process trying to control all that ink floating around. But here they are, my…

Crossing Norway – In The Narrowest Part

I haven't posted much in the last few weeks. The reason being that I’ve been lucky enough to walk across Norway. Before you get too impressed, though, I should mention that the crossing happened in width, not in length. And it happened in a narrow part of Norway, between Stjørdal and Sweden. But, nevertheless, we…

It’s Tough Being a Crab

When I was a kid (and still to this day, to be honest), I always start turning over rocks when I'm down by the water. The reason, of course, being the possibility of finding a crab. As a kid, when we wanted to catch a big one, we also used to put some goodies on…

Different Types of Trees

There are many ways to draw a tree. In my early drawing years, I always drew them as a lump of leaves with a trunk coming down from it. After a while I started drawing more distinct species, like pines, spruces and birches. Trees we have a lot of here in Norway. Some of them…

I Like How the Horses Turned Out

This is just a quick doodle I made the other day. There's not much to say about it. Other than that I like how the horses turned out. I drew them the same way I draw people. Quick, and in a very loose style. I've never used this style when drawing animals, though. But after…
