Here you go... my Easter speed build offering. Was quite a scary challenge for me to enter, as I regard myself as a very slow painter, but in the end I surprised myself and got it done by the end of Easter Monday. Photos had to wait for a patch of sun today.

They are superb - are they 20 or 28mm? Either way they are wonderful.
