My corner

Three journalists showed up on the media day, which is very good considering the newspaper corporations are going thru another big downsizing. I'm looking forward to see the result in tomorrow's Sydsvenskan, Trelleborgs Allehanda and Lokaltidningen.

Today I delivered 11 paintings at Falsterbo Art Gallery. So did Lars Fredholm and while we were at it we went down to the beach for some good birding. Lars, one of the last patient birders, found a Bar-tailed godwit, settled on the sand and let the bird come close for some nice photos.

New assignment

The Trelleborg Museum is rebuilding their stone age exhibition and asked me for some illustrations of everyday life in the Ertebölle village Skateholm. Curator Maria Jiborn kindly introduced me to "the sitting woman" buried in that position some 7000 years ago.

Migrating Eiders

This is an illustration for Anser. Migrating Eiders are one of the most fascinating events of my bird year.

I painted this as a preparation for my next continuers' course, where we'll be dealing with reflections in water. Tove accompanied me to Kullen, one of my paradises.

Some sheep escaped 7000 years ago, when still at an early stage of domestication, and founded feral populations on Sardinia, Corsica, Rhodes, and Cyprus. From there they have later been released as game in other parts of Europe. I spotted some in the Gredos mountains of Spain 28 years ago and made up the basic concept for this painting. Unfortunately the sheep were too far away for good sketching, so it wasn't until I found some captive ones that I actually painted this scene.

We've had a lot of sunshine the last few weeks, so why not make use of the great classroom out there? I showed the students how to render movement by minimizing detail and adjusting the animals' gestures, positions and distances to eachother. They drew what they wanted, like soccer players, pokémons and horses.
