This is certainly not a compliment I take lightly - because Robert Taylor, Paul Wright RSMA and Marii Chernev all have given the world some splendid pictures of HOOD during her final sprint. It is an understatement to say that all of these are excellent. There are probably others that I miss. John Hamilton as well, albeit sadly with not much of HOOD left.. But thank you so much. If you are interested there was a video which Drachinifel put on youtube about this piece last month. A link is copied below. My painting was completed deliberately timed for the 80th anniversary of the event last May. It was actually completed on the evening of May 24th - and the paint hadn't even dried on it when I first showed it via social media streams (then I had to go and clean my brushes up).
Thanks again and all the very best.
