Navigation: Main menu remains on top. The gallery menu stays on side. An easy layout to follow – my only criticism is lack of advance information on medium. This could be taken care of as a tool tip when the cursor rests on a thumbnail.
Gallery: City and Landscape, Figurative, Portraits, Archive. Only the Portrait gallery contains pastel paintings. All other works are in oil.
