Nooa´s portrait sketch

Oil on canvas, 2011

Mea painting some brilliant color bars.

I did this portrait sketch of my son, but I can not take the all of the credit because I got a lot of help from my lovely children!
Nooa painted his right ear and some of the background.
Mea made those beautiful color bars in the middle part of the painting.
She just loved the new brushes I bought from London.
We had super fun!

38 x 60, Oil on linen canvas

I walk past these boats almost every day and there is something really apealing in their rugged looks, I guess they are silently being very proud.
Just to mention that I had also the pleasure of meeting the crew last summer when i was doing plein air painting about the "Protector".

I was actually planning to do some pleinair painting, but I got this damned flu.
Maybe i continue these tomorror, but now I need a break from these to be able to make any kind of judgement. :)

Plein air fun

"Abandoned houses"

We had super fun painting at this nearby location with my friends.
There was plenty of abandoned houses in this old factory area.
Day was cold and windy, but definately worth the visit.

In the beginning stage..
