Thanks Sketch for giving me the inspiration to try another medium in AR, and thankyou all for the help in the problem with the white pinholes in my painting, I went with the method of the wet knife because my painting was already finished, it took a lot of the pinholes out, so am going to post it, hope it is a good start in Chalk:D

Wow Pat! That turned out AWESOME! I love the look the wet knife gave it. It almost seems like a watercolor, I would have never tried that with the chalk. Now I need to experiment with the wet knife!!! That is the coolest thing about this forum - how we learn from each other the infinite ways this software can be used to create art and the inspiration we get from each other. Fantastic job on this!:):):)

Pat - you certainly picked a fine artist in Eddie as one from which to draw inspiration and your certainly pulled it off beautifully in this painting. Wonderful, along with useful input in your approach that others can learn from. Terrific. :):):)

Dear Pat, it looks like your impressive progress pace and versatility is fruitfully expanding to chalk! A great tool indeed, not much different from pastels (crayons), but, in a way, more simple (as settings) and a little more flexible for smooth tonal transitions and textural application.
