I met Nils the other day at our small exhibition centre here where I live. He makes quite original are, as its a mix of paintings and wood carvings.
Here are a couple of portraits I did on location with some small camera flash and umbrellas. Also a close up at an angle to see the "depth" of one of the paintings.
This is one of Swedens most famous writers, Astrid Lindgren ( Pippi Longstocking )
Detail of the painting.
