Oil bar on canvas primed with grounding medium, used some brushes and paddles. Totally screwed one up before this, learn, learn, learn. Don't give up.

Mighty Meg

Oil bar on watercolor paper. Struggle too much tack. Want to try a subrate that I can scrape off but will not becompletely without absorbtion. Straight canvas no good too slippery. Getting closer with these sticks but they're still tough to work with. Little brush gets detail, But complexion gets muddied. Started with underlay of blending stick, flesh tone and white to where areas are raised. Added in shadows, lot of scraping back and forth. Tough, but want to learn. Stubborn.
