Early Morning Light, Billund, Denmark

I love the mornings at this time of year, with a cooler sun the mornings are heavy with dew and morning fog, and full of long shadows and dark corners of undergrowth.

Liguria Italy

Kalundborg, Denmark

Landscape painting – Denmark

The landscape in Jylland, southern Denmark where I live is pretty flat, especially compared to Switzerland, where we lived before. Lots of horizontals, hedgerows, heaths and flat horizons. It forces me to be more creative, and find more in less

Syvårssøerne, Randbøl, Denmark
