Close-up Details

On this page I have tried to show a selction close-up details of different styles of design.  I have included some examples of work in progress so you can see the methods used.  For all except my earliest work (in the days before digital cameras) I can usually provide close-up images, so if there is anything you want to see in more detail and at high resolution, please email me.
