This web gallery has been created for the various pencil drawings, charcoal drawings, and acrylic paintings produced by Nick Muso over the years.
Most of the landscapes - whether drawings or acrylic paintings - shown on the website are set in France, apart from the charcoal drawings, which are based on a series of walks by the Thames.
There is also a section containing Rebecca's paintings and portraits with a contact email if you would like to discuss commissioning a portrait from her.
Lastly, there is a section containing MP3s of various music tracks written and recorded by Nick Muso.

The Charente-Maritime department of France, located about half way down the western coast, is a popular tourist destination, and with good reason. The area benefits from a benign climate, and, while the coast is not blessed with the best beaches in France, with some sections of it dedicated to oyster farms, the medieval port of La Rochelle, and the Isle Ile-de-Ré are popular destinations and, for those looking for historical sites, the town of Rochefort is of some interest, having been a naval base since the seventeenth century.
Inland, the countryside has fields of sunflowers or maize, rivers such as the Seudre, Sèvre Niortaise, and Garonne, and, of course, the Charente, and its tributaries. Although generally rather flat, the countryside offers more than enough to delight not only tourists, but also an artist or landscape painter.
