Sunny day & sketch of my younger son

"Sunny day"
46 x 72 cm
Oil on linen canvas, 2011

Its a snow blizzard outside so I escaped the reality by browsing thru some reference photos from the summer.
I took a bit looser style with this one and used a lot of paint!
Super fun!


I got this 100 years old frame from my mother in law. The frame needed a lot of restoring and I also painted it totally black. It also needed a custom sized canvas that I streched in it.
It was fun experiment to paint directly to already framed canvas.

I just love the challenge to paint multiple figures.
Even I had to repaint all of them maybe a couple of times, I think it was fun go thru with this marathon. :)

Back in Finland

Its good be back in Finland and today here was a very windy day. It's not good for landscape painter but i trusted my easy-L easel and piled a couple of big heavy rocks for extra support.
Clouds were passing by super fast and I waited until I saw these wonderful cumulus clouds.
