Sigurd
Commissioned art

An organic triptych depicting a part of Norse mythology's Sigurd legend. Left we see the smith Regin reforging the sword Gram. Center; Sigurd slays the dragon Fafnir with Gram. Fafnir is also the brother of Regin but stuck in a different form. Right; Sigurd and Regin sit by the fire, roasting Fafnir's heart. Sigurd is undressed, his clothing soiled with blood and dirt. Sigurd has touched the roasting heart to see if it is cooked. He burns his finger and sticks it in his mouth, this way ingesting dragon blood. Suddenly he understand the birds who are singing in the trees around him. They speak of Regin, who wants to betray Sigurd, kill him and steal the dragon gold. Sigurd pulls out the sword Gram and decapitates Regin.

In a nutshell, there are many version of the tale I believe. This one was inspired by a runestone not far from where my client lives;  the Ramsund carving.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigurd_s… (Sö 101, the Ramsund carving)

Black ink and watercolour on 300gr Canson watercolour paper.

Trying to get into watercolours again. Scenery from a personal photograph. Really enjoying the unforgiving nature of watercolours. Much to learn!

Shieldwall!!
Venting my excitement for my combat-extra role in the upcoming Dutch film 'Redbad 754 A.D'.

Breaking in my new Moleskine A4 landscape watercolour book. It's big! This one is ready for watercolours. Decided to go for panels, to give it a comic feel.

Micron pens on Moleskine 200gr watercolour paper, 60 cm x 21 cm.
