(I used James Brennan's 2017 Bald Archy prize winning portrait of Australian cricketer Dave Warner, "Pocket Rocket", as my reference for the preview picture...)

Very cool work.

Thanks. I'd need to upgrade my laptop first... It's pretty dodgy at displaying colours accurately.

You work with 4 colors so well. I couldn't imagine how impressive you'd be without the limitation.

Thanks! I agree the colours worked well with this piece.

The translation to GB colors works really well here! :D
