Måns Bergendal – A passion for painting

My parents gave me a paintbox when I turned four

My first subjects were firetrucks and police cars but a couple of years later I started bringing the box and a drawing pad along when I went birding on the shores of the Baltic sea. Over time I developed a passion for the most down-to-earth technique – a hobby as well as a profession.


There is no better training than sketching from life. All you can plan is where to go and what to bring along. Work fast and create experience – not art. It’s about learning and having a good time.

I often want to take a beautiful experience with me, and painting is the way to do it. My paintbox has joined me on many trips around my native Sweden as well as abroad.

Leaving soon. Oil on canvas


After half a century with watercolours, trying oils is a relevation! I can repaint an area that needs improving, but it’s hard to reprogram and I tend to use thin glazes like I’m used to.
