I like the glow effect. Many people overdo it. I think you got just the right amount of glowing, so it does not make the blades look like they are in another universe.

As always it is a joy to see another one of your paintings. Whenever you post something new i always pop along to your website for a look at the step-by-step breakdown that you often do.
Actually my own technique is very similar and was based around what I saw on your website the first time I visited, so for that I will always be grateful. your openness in sharing your knowledge and techniques with others is very refreshing. Thanks Henning!!
