The painting is amazing. I really love the stone at the entrance to the tunnel. I like the idea of sanding the edges of those stones. I am going to do that on one of my projects. And I like the spatter aspect as well - that's kind of how I paint. Eagerly awaiting the finished project.

It takes my breath away - in awe. This is spectacular. I just can't believe how great the drawbridge is. And then the eagle over the opening to the castle. And the train passing through. Everything really. Thank you so much for sharing all of these details all along.

That's a lot of excellent work, but I imagine you will get much enjoyment out of it in your train set up.
