Nordic watercolouring

Last Friday we went fishing on a frozen lake in Ljungdalen in the north of Sweden. The ice was one metre thick and it took us 30 minutes travelling uphill on our cross country skies to reach the lake. I painted, the water froze and the colour pigment behaved very weird on my paper but as luck would have it, I brought along my new mini-gas-burner. The first watercolour caught fire briefly, the masking tape flamed up on me, you can see the burn on the right hand side of the first painting. It was zero to minus five that day, I had fun trying to do some watercolouring in very extreme conditions. 🙂

Mini Still lifes

I was cross-country skiing in the mountains near Norway last week.When my aching body was trying to recover in the evenings, I painted. Here are two little still lifes from the trip: 7,8 x 11,5 cm.
