My Second Cat Portrait Commission

This post is all about a commissioned watercolor painting I created in the beginning of summer. Before starting to work on the painting, I showed the client the cat portrait I had made a year ago. She liked the composition and we agreed I'd make this portrait in a similar way. The client had a list of certain plants that she wan...

A Custom Birthday Card Commission

The first time I got to create a digitally colored drawing as a commission! I mean, I do love watercolors but it was nice to do something a little different. Painting with watercolors is after all, to me, the most time (and brain-energy) consuming way of creating art.This cheerful fox was a custom design for a birthday card. The clie...

The King of the Forest - JWW 2021 Calendar, "In the Wonder World"

I've painted several different deer, but this is only my second moose. My first painting featuring a moose is actually an illustration in the story of Sebastian; you see, Sebastian's teacher is a moose. This moose that I painted for the upcoming calendar is a bit more realistic, but not too realistic, since the calendar is ...

2021 Calendar "In the Wonder World" - February

The illustration of February was very simple and took me only a few hours to finish. My main idea was to have a dark pond/lake in the middle of a forest, with everything dark and still. I wanted the scene to radiate silence so deep you can almost hear it from the image. The unicorn is in the center of the painting; it is the only source of light in...

The Creation of My Biggest Watercolor Painting Commission

Nine rats living in a fantasy forest; the most detailed large-scale painting I've ever done so far. The painting process took me about one and a half months from start to finish, though I should point out I did not work on this commission full-time. I also had other tasks and projects that I worked on during that time....

The Creation of a Custom Wedding Card

While I was still working on my biggest single watercolor painting commission (a blog post about that will be up later on), I created this simple custom wedding card for a family member. It was nice to make something small and simple after spending so much time on the big commission. The only instruction I got for this wedding card w...

Cat Portrait - Commission

So far, I have had the chance to create portraits of humans and dogs, but this time it was, for the first time, a cat.This particular cat had had a special relationship with pansies, and the commissioner wanted to have her furry friend portrayed with them, thus I got the idea of the kitty being surrounded with these flowers, holding one&n...

Wedding Portrait - Commission (wip)

This painting took me surprisingly little time considering it was A2-sized. But then again, the commissioner wished the painting to remain rather simple and wanted the surroundings of the couple to be blurry. So, at the end, the only places where I really needed to pay attention were the faces of the two people, and their upper bodies. As can ...
