About Ragnar Österlun


I have been painting in oil back and forth since 1997, but I have been drawing and sketching all my life. I have no formal education, but I have followed some evening courses in painting. I feel I have a natural talent and I am currently in the process of trying to develop it as far as I can.

I try to paint from life often and I love to paint outdoors. I mostly find the motives for painting in the vicinity of my home. I try to paint quick and I try not to overwork my paintings. Like many others, I use photos as reference for larger scale work, sometimes along with smaller studies.

When there is no time to paint (I currently work as software developer) I do drawings in charcoal to practice my drawing skills and keep up my mood.
