ya, i've been hearing/reading that a lot :D should be good to work with (i've only every painted with acrylic) although oils do take longer to dry :( (patience is a virtue i guess...)

Sometimes I'll cover my paintings with newspaper. It doesn't smudge or anything like that.

:) i think the shading turned out best in this piece 'cause i did black hair, which gave me more to work with in shading throughout the face (like a charcoal palette) thank you!
