...and here's the proof:
That's right, I've near-as-damnit finished the project for Zzzzzz. The pic is deliberately small as a wee teaser(!) but I hope to get some proper photos taken this weekend - details will accompany it then.
You'll note in the foreground my new brush. yup, after asking your advice something like ten months ago, I finally got myself a kolinski brush (from the good folks on the card).
And it's very nice.
PS: I fianlly got a decent lamp too.
