At last!  Snayers is an awesome and accurate painter, but I’ve spent a fortune travelling round museums taking pics of his work.  Expensive, but it will be worth it

All limitations are self imposed.  Work hard and dream big.

There's a fantastic set of Snayers' work in the Army Museum in Vienna (Heeresgeschichtliches Museum). The canvasses are huge and such panoramic detail. You could lose yourself in them for hours... :)
