    What else can be said, Wonderful work, beautiful movement and sense of story


  • Hey Diko, you are a great encourager. I am sure you understand how isolating it can be in the studio at times and feedback such as yours is always great for impetus and motivation. I make sure Pieter gets to see the feedback. Thanks, Tanya

    Great one Pieter. The sheep looks like it is about to stamp its foot in annoyance, as they tend to do. Love the treatment of the grass and trees also
