A Dash Of This, A Dab Of That

Before the start of National Model Painting Month, I wanted to do a practice run. During Breyerfest I was able to acquire an Annabelle Resin by Kylee Parks. I decided to paint this medallion before NaMoPaiMo.
In the month before the start of NaMoPaiMo a local art store decided to put their pan pastels on clearance. Which meant one thing. STOCK UP.
 My chosen color was bay, so I started with the pan pastels.
 After a few layers, I decided this wouldn't work. So I started over and did a layer of acrylic paint. Next came shading and highlights with the pan pastels.
 More layers. She's looking better!
 After I felt like the shadows and highlights were down, I broke out my oil paints. Jennifer Buxton has a really helpful how-to for oils, and it greatly helped me with the supplies and such.
 Almost there.
 Done! I'm really happy with how she came out. She was the perfect practice piece.
