A Paladin of Truth



Articles & Notes






I began with an on-line course in the summer of 2016 and did some of my earliest drawings in October of 2016. I draw for enjoyment and as a hobby. Most of my work is reproductions of others. I have a few that are OW or Original works. These are usually from pictures or are an adaption from a completely differently medium such as oil or acrylic. The lighthouse below was taken from an oil. The soda shop lower on the page is from a picture of a soda shop in the Caribbean.
