You do have a talent. Knowing nothing about modeling, I was fascinated to read how you layer the paint. Just as one would creating an oil painting. With a beautiful result.

Sarah,

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated!

My background is canvas painting and oil painting, so I think I transfer skills and techniques quite often. I've always been fascinated with the idea of 'painting backwards', working from dark to light, or other unusual techniques.

Excellent work! I wish I had the skills (not to mention the steady hand) to be able to do this!
