Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The idea for this painting came from watching a friend's daughter making washing up liquid bubbles in the garden. As the bubbles caught the light, I thought how amazing they looked and wanted to paint them. I wanted to use them in an unusual way, however, and decided to paint them as if they were lenses that would reveal what the eye could not. I used acrylic paint on watercolour paper. I knew this would be quite a delicate operation, but I wanted to use a medium that was a little bit more robust than watercolour. It was difficult to maintain the same skin tones on all the different sections of the body; acrylic paints have such a quick drying time that you can't mix up all the paint you are going to use at one time. However, I was delighted with the result!
