They've got a nice gait, well painted Michael

Nice painting, the figures are very good. Has a evening feel to it.

Beautiful painting and figures, Michael.

I really like this painting, lovely and loose

Nice loose treatment Micael, the figures have good movement.

Thanks Heather, Carole and Barry. Yes that’s right Barry. Trying to find the sun.
