I want to move. I really, really want to go someplace else. I want to live somewhere where I can have my own table to paint at, to be able to have both a paper and a laptop out at the same time. Somewhere where the whole house doesn't lift from the ground each time someone … Continue reading The ideal living conditions.
As the title suggests, this is about the process I went through with a painting. My regular procedure is more or less to get an idea, sketch it down on a watercolor paper, and start painting. This gives me a lot of ugly paintings and unfinished ideas. And yes, it is stupid of me to … Continue reading Process of the rooftop-painting, and learning so many new things.
Hello everyone! How are you? I feel fantastic myself, because since my last post about my "creative block" (I guess that's a good name for that?) I've found a way to break out of it! It was so simple, it's ridiculous. I just went into town, found an art supplies shop, and got myself some … Continue reading Breakout of the creative block.
Hello my dear imaginary friends. It's been a long while since I wrote you guys. I haven't really had anything to write about. I want these posts to have some sort of meaning. If it's to document my own progress, voice an opinion or share some information doesn't really matter, as long as there's some … Continue reading Practice and practice and nothing is working out.
As you can see, I've continued on the lighthouse-track. I really liked the motive, and since I've been forcing myself to practice, I feel a bit more confident in drawing buildings. I thought I'd make a little more elaborate lighthouse(-house). It started out as just a sketch, during some downtime in the playground. There's not … Continue reading More lighthouse
A little late, but here are my documents from last month: The summarising spread for the whole month. My hair is longer than it's ever been, it's quite annoying. Mom's house is full of kittens. I slaughtered a rooster for the first time(the handling of the body was worse than the actual killing). I'm getting … Continue reading Diary in May
Early each morning he rows out on the ocean to fish. Laying out a net would be more effective, but he has no need for saving time. He has nothing else to do besides turning the light on and off, and the occasional maintenance of the lamp. And he enjoys being out in his boat … Continue reading A little lighthouse keeper
As the title suggests - this isn't the kind of stuff you usually see here. Well, you know, it's still drawings, just not the kind I usually make, or even the kind I enjoy making. I've been sketching from real life. One thing that comes as a bonus for living out on the country is … Continue reading Something completely different.
Hello! Here are two small paintings I made in the weekend. I really like the concept of small children and big animals. Or, small children and big anythings, really. I once made a long series of children in teacups, for example. This concept really interests me, because I'm a big fan of small cultures. Here's … Continue reading Small children and big animals
Hello! First of all - You might have noticed the changes around here. I'm just trying out some new things. Everything should pretty much be where I left it, but please let me know if I messed something up. Now for the thing I was going to talk about. Remember the scarecrow project? It's still on, … Continue reading Project is coming along
