Brian,  :thankyou:  for your encouragement! Your kind words have been taken to heart!  :flowers:

PS. The veins are pretty simple.  I used a very light version of the shadow color and a rigger brush.(not sure of the spelling) It has a small amount of long hairs and allows for very thin lines.

  :wave:  C.    :wave:   C. ... I want your undivided attention here. The mottled background is excellent, the contrast, superb. You're doing a banner job and coming along famously. You are testing the waters (so to speak) and growing leaps and bounds. Well done.  O0  :clap:   :clap:   :yippee:
Cheers, Val
