Sometimes I like to keep unsolved puzzles around and look at them a lot before solving them. This is like that, too pretty to keep in the back and forget about. Thanks, oynot!


I see what they mean by transparent skin tones! So lovely and realistic*!*

I wish I could paint this good!! Thanks for introducing me to this very talented artist :-)


Brilliant painting. This looks so real-to-life. You can almost read what is on the pages of the book she is reading!
