Very skilfully painted with fantastic tonal values Michele. A wonderful memoir.

Fantastic work Michele - great photographic drawing

Thank you Carole it was a challenging yet enjoyable commission to undertake with so much detail at such a small size!

Thank you Christine it certainly was a great challenge!!


Hi Tony thank you for your comment!!
