She's so beautiful. The subtle colors are so light and soft. I really like the brushwork or the branches.

This is wonderful. :) I love india ink! I'm sorry, what do you mean by thin layers? Do you let something dry then paint over it? I've been working with a quill and ink doing small sketches but my brush work is terrible! I'm trying to get better. So many questions, I'm sorry!
