    Hi guys. Just wanted to show you my latest painting effort. It's still missing the iron cross at the neck since it was missing in the box and Andrea have a slow service I'm afraid. Anyway, hope you like it.

    Stephen,
    nicely done! I've never noticed the seahorse on the cap before. What does it represent, do you know?

    Superb painting, as always Stephen! Very well done. I particularly like the plaid shirt and the way you painted the cap.

    What's with the "whatever-it-is" on the left middle sleeve seam? ?

    All the best,
    Dan

    Thanks Dan. What you see there is a rip in the seam with an amateur 'repair' evident.
