Thank you for your comment - and likewise very nice to hear from you again too. I hope that we are still 'squarer than a spru-can's bridge window..' ! Also hope all's well and you are keeping well in 'Straya.. by a weird coincidence I am actually painting a Spru-can right now. It is part of a commissioned piece depicting USS IOWA. Oh the irony.. me painting IOWA
With further respect to harrowing - there are actually a few faces peering out from within the detail of the painting - mostly around the control & lookout positions and upper bridge decks etc.. and none of those poor guys obviously made it.
I promise that my next painting of HOOD will be a more cheerful one!
All the best,
