Done some more work on the trailer today. Sprayed it in chrome, fitted the wheels and lights. The next step, I'll get some decals made for it and have a go at some weathering.

Thanks..my style is more sketchy..I guess...It takes so much time & concentration...you only have to get a feature a little out & it totally changes the individual's look.

Great works... The best thing about this kind of creation is it clears the head which I find to be the best reason for havin a hobby in the first place. :cool:

Well....with the drawing...it actually is very stressful....& I am a perfectionist...so that doesn't help...if the portraits are for a customer......my head is anything but clear...try....anxiety....head ache causing concentration....wow....why do I do it ?...oh that's right pays o.k....but like I said....on the back burner.
But the furniture restoration does relax me & clears my mind...I actually get turned on when it's all going to plan...no joke.....why is that ?.....

Haha, Perfectionist? That makes you your own worst nightmare. :lol:
Furniture resto...Turned on from it? Well your partner should be encouraging you to get into that more... :D I'd say you may have found something you really like...if you know what I mean. You must have found that right nerve. :cool:
The wife recons I'm much nicer to be around after I have been tinkering around in the shed for a bit getting stuff right.

Love the sketches...

It's not the chair or buffet etc... that makes me very ( wanting ),...it must be the thrill of the work/piece being transformed & working to plan...I don't know....all good....now....where's that sander..... :sillywink:
