Magnificent; has movement and "theme" that is hard to describe. The detail and colour despite the muted tones comes off beautifully.
Cheers,

I was wondering how this painting would look now, after my forum absence.

Actually i lack the proper words to do it any justice. I rather thank you for leting us watch it "grow", it's is real a pleasure and honour.

Cheers.

I love it, Russ!  It definitely conveys the sense of desperation, especially with those tracers flying around.
Cheers,
Bud

Incredible work, Russell! The tracers really cap it off. I love it.
