Adherents of the classics may be outraged: but what about the artistic skills, the possession of a brush and the technique of painting?! All this is there, but the tools are used in this case virtual. In the process of creativity, Sotervik does not get dirty with paint, and selects the color scheme using the color selection option.
Maybe that's why Sotervik doesn't call his works created in Paint paintings. For them, he uses another term, probably more appropriate in this case ‒ 'quick sketches'.
Seeing them, the sophisticated viewer will immediately catch the connection between the works of the Norwegian and the paintings of Bob Ross. The famous American popularizer of the technique of rapid painting, for sure, would be surprised to see the work of Sotervik. After all, they are created in just a couple of hours, and to learn how to draw in the same way, it is enough to get acquainted with the sketching technique ‒ quick drawing. Therefore, anyone can become the creator of an exclusive landscape. Paint will help you.
