Hi all!
Tomorrow I will go on an inspirational travel to a small Greek island to paint. I'm so excited!!:happybounce:  Unfortunately this means that I will be inactive here on DA until I'm back on the 4th of October. I have packed my blue palette of colors and when I'm back again I hope to have many new paintings to show you! I will miss you all a lot!
Until I'm back, take care and stay creative!! Heart Heart Heart 
For everyone to see by NeoNative
For everyone to see
Watercolor 2016, São Paulo, Brazil.
In the middle of the white concrete jungle.
Where every wall is a potential blank spot to fill.
Gigantic spaces waiting for a message.
And at night the concrete transforms,
into a spectrum of golden colors.
Like enormous screens shouting out the loud letters.
For everyone to see...
Illuminated houses and walls,
filled with messages that, 
no one paid for,
no one asked for,
and no one wrote.
For everyone to read...
Soon to be washed away, but just to be replaced.
Cause the reasons why,
Autumn light by NeoNative
Autumn light
Watercolor, 2014. Himmelstorp, Sweden.
Autumn is coming and here's a bright memory from an autumn hike in the beech woods surrounding Himmelstorp during a sunny day in november. The autumn air was cold, clear and filled with the characteristic scent from old leaves, damp trees and moss. The sidelong sunlight came out for a few minutes making the trees casting long shadows over the red ground.  It was a beautiful sight and a beautiful walk! 
Hope you like it!
By the riverbank by NeoNative
By the riverbank
Watercolor 2015, Ängelholm, Sweden.
A summer memory! I wanted to capture the sun and the dark clouds reflecting in the river and also try to create a feeling of the transparency and movement in the water.

Look out dad! by NeoNative
Look out dad!
Watercolor 2016, Bjärehalvön, Sweden.
This is a painting from a beautiful summer day full of bathing in the sea and playing in the sun! It is absolutely one of the best memories from this summer (up until now)! :D (Big Grin) This painting has been submitted to the group Watercolorists' AquaChallenge for summer paintings.
I have tried to capture the backlight from the scenery. I hope you like it a bit!
Full moon over Almirida Bay by NeoNative
Full moon over Almirida Bay
Watercolor, 2016. Almirida, Crete, Greece.
Sleepy clouds making their way over the town lights that just woke up. It's evening in the little town of Almirida and the restaurants on the beach have just opened for the night. The day was really windy (for the season) and it almost felt like the waves would crash into the restaurants which are placed right on the beach.

I came home from a trip with to Almirida on Crete with my family and some friends last Thursday and I finished this painting today! I hope you like it!
Fog over the Windy City by NeoNative
Fog over the Windy City
Watercolor 2016. Chicago, Illinois, USA.
Finally this painting is ready! I have been working with this for almost a year now and I finished it yesterday! Something with the perspective and the colors made this painting a real challenge. Also, I wanted the fog to flow into the picture and dissolve the symmetry of the city. This proved to be difficult to achieve... 
The painting is from a visit to Chicago in October 2010. We were welcomed by amazingly good and warm weather and when we were lucky enough to get to experience when afternoon fog from Lake Michigan suddenly came in over the city. It happened right before our eyes when we were up in this skyscraper. It was an almost unreal experience, seeing the skyscrapers slowly disappear in the thick fog. It lasted for maybe 30 minutes and then the sun was back! 
Hope you like it!
By the water's edge by NeoNative
By the water's edge
Watercolor 2016. Rammsjöstrand, Sweden.
This is a painting of the water's edge at this stony beach of Rammsjöstrand. The stones were covered in green algiers and red seaweed which were reflected through the clear water. I wanted to try to capture that in a painting. This is the result and I hope you like it!
The treasure island by NeoNative
The treasure island
Watercolor 2016, Es Vedra, Ibiza, Spain.
I think that it is like taken from a fairy tale. This is the wild island of Es Vedra blessed with the morning light a calm morning. The fog has lifted and the sun is let in wandering from the pine-tree forest, over the sea and onto the steep east side of the island. I can't help thinking about mysterious treasures and pirates! In the sunset the island silhouette looks like a dinosaur which has fallen with part of it's head into the sea... It doesn't offer anything to visitors but it is a truly mysterious island...
Hope you like it!

NeoNative's Profile Picture
Magnus Rapp
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Painting is my passion. Expressing myself through pictures has always been very important to me and a very personal thing for me. I mainly work with watercolor and my pictures are mostly personal reflections of places I have visited or dream about visiting. I'm fascinated by big city nights and the lives we live during the night time. I believe that this is the time when we all become more open and are more human than machines. When there is time for other thoughts than about your job and every-day life. There is time for night walks, talks, thoughts, fantasies, love and passion. It's during that time we all can be Neon Natives...

A second passion is music, but thats another story. If you like you can check me out on Soundcloud.
