25 Layers!! Holey Moley!! I get up to 12 and then I think: ‘Enough with the layers now!!’Helen, you have sooo many gorgeous Bubbler portraits in a similar style that you should consider a calendar. They are all super unique but also come together beuatifully as a collection.Great work, something for me to aspire to. Helette
‘Holey Moley’…lol..I have to drop or merge the layers to keep the file smaller…especially when I end up with too many layers… I like to layer in different modes…a bit like glazing in traditional painting…to give the image depth…Thank you….xox
Picatso, now you’ve got me thinking… I only need another six bubbler portraits for a calendar…I would love to do a calendar of Bubblers…:)
WOW ! Hee this is amazing one of my FAVS .
