Fields in blossom II

The white flowers reflect the strong light of the sun in the midday swedish countryside. The air is moist and the atmosphere makes the trees in the distance fade away in a blue haze.

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.
