    Chinapete, this has some lovely texture. What are you doing to achieve this? It's both simultaneously soft and yet has some visual grit to it. You're also getting some nice play of various values. Are you actually laying down color with the chalk first, and then "blending" with watercolors over the top of it, on the same layer?

    chinapete.. wow I have to agree with Steve B our resident W/C master.. this has some amazing qualities to it...luminous colors subtle and they appear to shift and move.. ( or maybe that is my meds from this morning.. )

    Thanks everyone for the feedback ...

    I've got to get away from that "hourglass" design, thanks eighty+ ... I always tried for watercolor in oil, in natural mediums I used to prefer soft pastel brushed out with an oil drier "wash" on rough paper and I was trying to imitate that effect here ...

    In the digital world I'm partial to the chalk tool because it faces to water and oil ... This is a one-layer chalk ground with w/c overlay, still at the experimental stages ... There are repetitions of chalk over water over chalk throughout ... I suppose some of the effects could be gotten more easily or efficiently with the palette knife, but that's too blunt an instrument for my purposes ... Edges are critical ...

    ... I've appended a thumbnail of a chalk wash on resident AR Rough Paper, I hope it will give some idea of the process ...

    Thank you everyone for the generous comments ... Fine print: apply technique with caution, likely to deteriorate the quality of your artwork, hehe ...
