Drawing on Painted Surfaces

Layering can include drawing on your painted surfaces using drawing materials including oil pastels and oil sticks. The drawn elements may contract with the painted ground of complete and compliment it. The drawn lines may be transparent, light and delicate with the ground dominating, or thick and heavy like the kind made using oil stick colors.
