Hestur

The Icelandic horse is a wonderful animal to ride and to paint. I used a very thick mixture of Ultramarine blue, Ivory black and Burnt sienna for the shaded side of its body.

By the window

My younger daughter Sissa loves to pose and did so for a photo I took a while ago and used for this demo painting.

Silent moment

My mother was busy talking as usual but I asked her to sit down and read something nice so I could make a picture.

At the beach

A hot summer day at Salviken. French ultramarine is an excellent color for skies, shadows, vegetation and aerial perspective.
