From Chalk to Oil

In Painter, I cloned a chalk drawing image from the previous post, then repainted the chalk drawing with Painter oil brushes. This is a quick experiment, so I have more work to do on it before it's finished. I think this technique, when it's output to canvas, will be suitable for painting on top of the image with real, traditional paint (which mentor Jeremy Sutton, is encouraging me to do).

Dancer with Black Scarf, detail. Still in progress and more work planned for this painting.
