Art and photography from the righthand lefty


In rare occasions in history people achieve greatness. The truly great become symbols. Nelson Rolihlala has become, far beyond the borders of South Africa, a universal symbol for the failure of repression an the liberty of the human spirit. He’ll be 95 on july 18th.

First try with my brand-new watercolors, again a gift from my father, on real watercolor paper (Hurrah for progress)!



James Gandolfini 1961-2013

I really don’t have time at the moment to be drawing as i have to make up for some lost time from work. But i really wanted to pay tribute to the great James Gandolfini who passed away, way too early, yesterday in Italy. So i did something i remember from my time as a student and set myself a „pencil down” challenge, trying to capture a likeliness within a limited 10 minutes. Here’s the quick sketch, pencil on paper.

Them good ol' days 2

So Here it is: the very first watercolor painting i ever made. It’s a typical little house on the Danish island „Fyn” in the neighborhood of „Odense”.

Watercolour on paper - 1984!


Classical Gas

Well it’s a start i suppose. Inspired by the great Tommy Emmanuel I made this little watercolor thingy with my vintage Schminke watercolor box. It’s not a perfect portrait by a long stretch but i did have loads of fun with it. I’ll definitely be buying a few new paint cubes (as i am missing a few basic colours) and i’ll be purchasing some watercolor paper because this normal sketch paper curls in all kinds of directions when wet.
