Time for this year's Christmas break and why not spend it introducing watercolor painting to the next generation? Sissa working on a pink balloon.

Impressionism

Even though watercolor painting actually began as a sketching technique, it is not until the 20th century that the art of keeping paintings loose and brisk really flourished. Here I used a limited palette and a large brush to paint in a more impressionistic style than I usually do. Lake Rocksjön in July.

An old forest

Most of the pictures I paint are detailed illustrations of plants and animals but this time I got the opportunity to do a landscape: an old forest in Småland. I made it for a guide to nature reserves to be printed next year.
