Heavy wind

"Heavy wind"

It was a nice and windy day today. Good day to put the new easel into windtest.
We were painting on the shores of Helsinki.

"Nocturne Trees"

I almost forgot to post this painting that i painted a few nights ago.
Its funny what kind of color harmonies can occure when you are only using a led based headlamp in the middle of the night.
Its fun and spooky, of course. :D

NEW EASEL!! EASyL Versa by Artwork Essentials

What an happy day!
I just got this new plein air easel. I could not be more happier about it!
Its sturdy and very solid in design. In this case it was a huge benefit that it is really fast to assemble.
I added a piece of glass and the grey paper on the bottom of it to have this glass pallette that i have been wanting to have for a while.
I only had like 30 minutes on the spot before the darkness fell, thats why the painting looks so sketchy. I had super fun!

I am also glad that they do ship these easels internationally. Find out more from

Oil on canvas

I bought these flowers to my dear wife a week ago.
It seemed like a nice subject to paint. Flowers always have such a nice variation in edges.

SNOW!! Finally

Oil on linen canvas, 23 x 31 cm

Nuoska is finnish word for the snow that is really wet.
It was a beautiful day and i really enjoyed the silence in there.

Lego Train

"Lego Train"
Oil on linen canvas, 75 x 104 cm

This is one of the largest work so far.
It took me a quite a many days and nights to finish this painting.
There is some glare on the canvas, but i post a better picture later on.
It just started to snow. I do wish to do some plein air painting before it melts away :)
