Hi Anders,yep,oils as usual,had a scary turn though,i used W&N sap green,and it went through the second primer and hit the grey primer,must have been a bad tube.

Excellent work Author. I couldn't hope to do this well in weeks, let alone hours. I assume this is from the retreat from Cornell? Amazing how ragged the 95th got durring that campaign.
