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…

Quiet Fishing

I wanted to make this drawing/painting give a perspective from both over and under the water surface. To give an indication of what's going on beneath. And there is nothing much to see there, to be honest. It looks like it's going to be a very quiet day at the job for this fisherman. As…
