A Bit Closer – But Not There Yet

In my last post I tried out something new. A pen and wash, which took a step closer, literally, to nature. Before, I've done some pen and washes of hill sides. Filling them in with people, animals, bushes, birds and cabins. Now I wanted to put all the attention towards nature itself, in it's purest…

Getting A Bit Closer – Something To Build On

I've been enjoying that ink and watercolor combination before. But I've often used it to highlight some small features in a drawing, like a hut or people hiking in the landscape. This time I wanted a return to this lovely combination of mediums, but taking it a bit closer. Walking deeper into the woods. And…

Working Around The Colours

To spice it up a bit, I decided to do a couple of those hill drawings using watercolour. So far I’ve done the ink drawings first, adding the watercolour as the last touch. Now, however, I wanted to do it the other way around. I can see now that I should have taken photos before…

A Painting With Few Words

I'm a bit lost for words today. Not because I'm surprised, angry, sad or excited. They are just missing, in an empty kind of feeling. Not empty in a bad way. Just empty. I still want to post a painting, though. A painting that doesn't need too many words. Just a painting that is what…

Something – But I Don’t Know What

This is a watercolour painting that looks a bit messy. Or maybe it just looks a bit creepy. Or maybe both. Are there some cool features in there as well? I don't know. I can't decide. In my mind, it looks like a scary path on a dark autumn night. A place where I would…

Back With a Fan Brush – And a Bit Too Excited

I've been going through my painting equipment lately. Selling what I don't use, to be able to spend more time with what I enjoy most. I knew there was a lot of stuff in the first category, but I have to say that I was amazed. I had loads of brushes, now I have about…

Just Trees or Something More?

In my last post I briefly showed off a few new watercolour pieces. Like most of my recent watercolour paintings, they show trees, grass and fence posts, in different shapes and colours. But, is that enough to make you intrigued? Or is it missing something more? Would you have added something? If so, what would…

Another Ink Painting

I think I'm starting to get the hang of these ink paintings now. Even though they sure are tricky to control. Just a few seconds of untouched ink makes a severe impression on the paper. So I definitely need to work fast. Some mistakes turn out to be good ones, though. Others I have to…

Rusty Fields

I like these rusty fields. They remind me of autumn. When the weather is a bit colder. And the mind a bit clearer. The skin is hazel brown from the sun. Ready for months of darkness. But with all the light from summer. Will make it until next time. I hope you're doing alright, and…
