The camera never lies… Or does it !?!?…


I’m planning on expanding the contents here over the coming months / years, and I also intend to try various techniques too as I go…. Some may be successful, and some maybe not… The “nots” you’ll likely never know about though…. lol…

To be honest though, I have neither drawn nor painted anything in well over 15-20 years up until late 2010, hence the limited selection so far, and painting never really was my thing… but I intend to try it out as best I can soon…

These are ALL sketched / drawn / painted by me… just in case you were wondering… :)

  5. Absolutely LOVE the oil painting ♥ I think you should finish it… and then re-create it and make it a winter scene with Christmas lights on one of the foreground trees ;-)

    • Lol.. Thanks Michaela… Hmmmm… Unfortunately it’s suffered some damage in storage over the years… I tried so many times to finish it though, but could never get some foreground rocks the way I wanted them, and eventually gave up… Hence here you can only see a cropped version of it..
