Welcome to Malin Redvall's watercolor site

During the last years I have been painting a lot of birds. Mostly seabirds.
I will exhibit these and some other birds, some houses and lighthouses
in my summer show at
Ramsvik in Bohuslän, Sweden.

 If you see something you want to buy, originals or posters, please contact. me.

Posters

I began painting watercolor and sketching early in life as a way of understanding
the world.

Ten years old I went with my mother,
who was an architect student, on a field trip to Italy. Her professor said sternly to
the students:

- Shooting what you see with the camera
is not enough. In order to understand your surroundings, it's forms and it's volume, you have to sketch it. In that way you will stop up, dwell on the forms and after a while you will see and understand. Then you will remember. What you see in that way will be a part of you for the rest of your life.

This sank deep into my ten year old soul. After that trip I have always had a sketchbook in my pocket.

For a long period, when I was working as
a composer of music for theater, I stopped painting. Now I am on it again. Painting
and sketching as much as I can when I'm not working as a graphic designer.

And the professor was right. Sketching is helping me to see and understand the world
in many, many ways.

I am Swedish but I live at Nesodden outside Oslo in Norway. That is a good place to be. But I also like to be at the Swedish west coast. My origin.
