Skadi, done

I think Skadi is done.  I’d left it for quite a while to allow the initial layers to dry.  I had never painted on board before, and found it extremely challenging.  For me, board  (even gessoed) is too slippery for oils, and I thought that the underpainting would allow subsequent layers to grip; but I guess I just paint too thin, or too oily.  This was mostly an exercise for fun – to practice applying paint in a more painterly style, rather than focus on the finer details.
