Back to Basics

Kol, brunt omslagspapper och stilleben. Ibland är det befriande att slippa välja färg, kombinera och blanda. Utan bara titta och rita, det man ser och inte ser. Det blir snett och vint. Teckning i nuet, utan krav på ett färdigt resultat. Resultatet ligger i seendet och tecknandet.


No color, a still life, charcoal and cheap brown paper. No result, just a practice, a practice to see – and draw. Mindful creation.

Cat in corner

My cat is my perfect painting partner. Does not give any remarks that makes me start thinking (doubting). Does not ask what I mean. Does not ask if it is finished. Does not say that it looks different from what I normally do. My cat doesn’t say; you can do better.
I have learned from experience. Keep comments away during process of creating until you are 200% sure and your heart says “done”! (At least for now).
