A beautiful accomplishment Diana glad you posted it

What a tricky subject, Super strong tonal range which lifts the whole painting, great job Diana.

Lovely confident work Diana, that must be some class you attend!

Beautifully done, Diana.

Thank you Lea and Tessa. It certainly looked daunting at the start of the session
