Long time no see

It's been a long time since last update, and to any followers I can only apologize. My computer broke down early last fall, and my spare lap top is unable to read SD cards. This rendered me unable to import photos to my computer, so I sort of lost interest in the whole blog, and left it alone. Not only that, I lost an important motivation for painting my Warhammer models, and must admit I've barely lifted a paint brush most of these past months.. I did paint up a Bretonnian Damsel for my brother's christmas gift, but as I couldn't get any photos up on the blog, I didn't bother with photographing it, before I gave it away - sadly, 'cos I was rather happy with how it turned out in the end.

So why revive my blog, you might ask? Well, I just happen to be the owner of a new PC, and now there's nothing to stop me from uploading photos of models I paint anymore, so why not make a small entry in the blog, to help myself get my cans of paint, bottles of glue and all my brushes out! In the moment of writing this, I have to admit my inspiration to paint Warhammer models is pretty low, but who knows what will happen, when I publish this post? Time will tell...

When I said I barely had lifted a brush these last couple of months, it was only partly true.. Many, many years before I started thinking of painting miniatures, I loved to paint and draw, and since the middle of December, I have been picking up my old aquarell-set, and done some good old fashioned painting on paper. For reasons unknown to me, I'm in a period of high inspiration and productivity not experienced for many a year, which I find immensely fun! So, in the absence of any painted miniatures, I thought I'd share some of my recently painted aquarelle paintings.

Hope you like them!


  1. Wow... your paintings look amazing, specially the first one!

    Congrats for comming back, glad to hear that ;D

    I felt almost the same and have a similar story, but I've built a pair of paint/tools racks and I'm finishing building a desktop to stay motivated in the hobby. Having somewhere to paint every day without setting everything and then put everything away... was a little frustrating. I hope my desktop would help me painting more efficiently ;D

  2. Thank you!

    I know exactly what you mean Nesbet, and what you've shown on your blog so far looks really great! Wish I was able to construct something like that!

    ...Would be nice with a more tidier workspace.. I'll think on it!

  3. Welcome back Noeste.

    You have some talent mate - the third one is just fantastic.

    Even if your painting is all you show, I would say keep on blogging and sharing this with the community.


  4. Hes BACK!! Glad to see you posting again, wondered if we had seen the last of you. I love the work you did, and am partial to the soft tones from the first, while appreciating the pose you captured on the third.
    Awesome to have you back, Bard

  5. Thank you for the kind words Pom and Bard.

    I'll do my best to keep the regular updates coming!

  6. The first one seems the best to me. But all of these paintings are sensual and seize the eye.

    (If I made any mistakes, please correct me, cause English is not my first lng ;))

    Have a nice day and if u got a minute look at my site and leave some opinion - i'll be thankful.

  7. Thank you for the comment zu!

    You're working with some very strong moods and colours on your own site - I'll be sure to drop by regularly!
