For test piece #3, I used some hand dyed fabric for the background and then added some color with my oil paint sticks. Originally, I was still planning to paint over the background. But I liked how the oil paint was. So I didn't.
So then I tried to get the "halo" effect with a white paint stick around the figure. It is very subtle.

I wasn't ready to move onto the larger piece, yet, because I still wanted to paint over the quilting lines. This test piece wasn't the final answer. Test piece #4 tomorrow.
