One of the photos I took as reference. I started painting it from memory, but decided I couldn't remember enough detail so went back with a camera the next evening. Of course I couldnt' find the same spot exactly and the light was a bit different, but so it goes.
In other news, philmophlegm has been seized with an uncharacteristic urge to home improvements. Today, we have not only stripped a room of its contents and bought paint, but he has also borrowed a powered sander and has sanded down an elderly wooden chest which had had a rather unsympathetic previous stripping and varnish applied, with the intent of giving it a more attractive stain. Exhausted by this, he then went to bed early.
I hope he isn't sickening for something. Or been abducted by aliens and replaced by a body double...
