Woodstack perch

I like these birds. I'll have a nestbox ready for them next spring.

Redstarts

I got to know this troll in the lichen-covered pine woods of Roslagen. Now that I live in Skåne it’s the no 1 garden bird, entertaining us with their nice “Pewit-tick-tick” calls as we build our garden house. Their chicks recently left their nests, hung around as long as their parents fed them, and then went on to get to know the world. Our hammer beats are left to make the background sounds on their own.

Farm at dusk

Painting darkness is always a challenge and leaving parts of the paper light is often a solution. This is a farm close to where we live in Skåne.

Drizzle

This is a quick sky study that I made a few weeks ago, wet-in-wet with a wet-on-dry layer on top of it. Lack of time stopped me from overworking the painting.
