The panels have been ordered, shipped, and on the way. In the meantime, I’m designing the project in my head. Here is the picture the customer has asked to be painted.

Sunrise on Veierland


I have just received a new commission to paint a Norwegian sunrise on three large (24″ x 48″) panels. My immediate reaction, besides being very excited about this project, is to turn it into an advanced class in seascape painting. Stay tuned for details as they develop!

My second schooner attempt

"After the Storm"

Karsten Kittelsen

is an artist specializing in seascapes, nature and wildlife.  His current preferred medium is oil on canvas and canvas board, but he is also experimenting with watercolors.  A trainer at heart, he is looking forward to authoring and conducting courses in how to paint seascapes in oils, and branching out from there.  This blog will keep you posted as new works are completed and courses become available.

If you wish to contact the artist with comments, suggestions, or if you want to purchase any works posted on this blog, please contact him via e-mail at or by phone at 207-266-6027.
