This is the large ellipse pictured earlier this month (being primed).  Its the largest surface i have painted and was extremely difficult to get even.  The final finish is the best yet - due to 8 coats of lacquer over two days.  This allowed the first 4 to dissolve into the basecoat and dry to create a gloss - and then a further 4 to sit on top of this and act as a clearcoat. 

I damaged it in the centre by overcorrecting a large scrape mark in the final coats.  It needs to be sanded back in one spot and then blended in.  This may prove to be hard as the mark sits on the middle of the fade.  The fade was done by gradually building up layers of a tinted clearcoat.  

Im unsure as to how this will fit with the others in the group.
