Calm winter day

"Calm winter day"
27 x 35 cm
Oil on birch panel.


We had super nice calm weather today. Maybe a bit grey, but least it didnt rain anything down on us. Mauri is working intensively on his pastel painting in the background.

I have a solo exhibition coming up in Helsinki, a week from now, so I have been busy to get that sorted out.  I am really looking forward to it.

Still life´s





Here is a couple of still life´s that i painted on birch panels.
I was more fun to do a series of these, just to really study the subtle color/value shifts these translucent surfaces have.
Last one of these is a bit more simplified version and I am looking forward to incorporate more of that style to tomorrows pleinair session. :)
