Art from the heart

By Anton Liachovic

Here in My Gallery I have displayed photos of the paintings which I have drawn since 2012. The inspiration to draw the New Zealand landscapes came when I visited New Zealand (North and South islands) in December 2013 and January 2014 as well as in January-March 2019. The beauty, majesty and grandeur of this country captivated my heart forever! I am glad I can share with you these NZ paintings as well as other pictures in this gallery. I used soft pastels, oil pastels, oil paints, acrylic paints, gouache, watercolours, graphite pencils and charcoal. (I live in Trakai, Lithuania.)
