V1 is absolutely, stunningly beautiful.
The tiny beads of water and large drops from the knob and beak make the portrait special.
The black and white points are spot-on and the orange beak is just right.
V2 you can have all to yourself - I don't eat sweets, Mike Smile

It looks like we've discovered your hidden talent Mike, you are epz's answer to Paul Hollywood without the goatee!Wink V2 looks very appetising and wouldn't last long if some if this lot got their hands on them!Tongue V1 is a sublime swan portrait, the details are exceptional and I think Gary will be touched when he sees it.
