Ethan, David, Nick, appreciate the comments!
Really nice work Bill!
Question, do you seal the pigments after they dry?
No, I don't use any kind of sealer on the pigments. The combination of the "tooth" on the dull coat and the water application is enough to hold them in place, just have to be very careful with the handling afterwards of course. That's why it's always the final step for me before completion.
