    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.

  • ‘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
