What I want really is to paint half as well as you...! I did think there may 
have been digital manipulation involved in this painting because it has that 
otherworldly 'glow' about it, while remaining photo-realistic - but you've 
obviously achieved this with natural skill.

I realise the skill can't be imparted, but could I ask what brand of acrylic 
paint you have, and for details on the 
brushes used?
