I watched a video creating a painting that started out with Ink washes light to dark carving out the main value shapes. Next, Black and White oil sticks to refine the process.  I Decided to give it a try and I think the most fun was  using my fingers to blend the the stick marks.  I liked finger painting when I was a child and this was a lot of fun too, but much messier.

Shades of Light

After the white oil stick finally dried, I put the piece on a wood panel and painted the sides black.

Shades of Light-edge
